North to North West
Cable Hut Bay is the anchorage of choice in N and NW weather in the vicinity of SW Yorke Peninsula. The Western half of the bay seems universally rocky, there are sandy spots in the E half . The bay is shallow for quite a long way offshore. In 2-3 metres of water one is several hundred metres from the shore. Holding seems good in sand with light weed patches.
Approach from all directions is straightforward with the charted islands and rocks readily identifiable. The charted shoals can give rise to occasional, unpredictable breaking waves.
There is road access along the hills above the bay and a wooden walkway and lookout at the Eastern end of the bay.
