Anchorage:

Mittlers Cove is a sandy anchorage situated at the western end of Thistle Island, between Nose Point to the north and Carrington Point to the south. The eastern end of Hopkins Island is about 3/4 of a mile to the west. A reef, not clearly shown on some charts runs underwater from Nose Point at least half way to Hopkins Island. If approaching from the north, keep to within a few hundred metres of Hopkins Island. A smaller reef extending out from Carrington Point can be seen in the photograph taken from the anchorage.

Comments:

The sound of the southerly swell on this reef is somewhat disturbing, but it does provide some protection from the swell.
