Excerpt from Chart 18421
Depths in fathoms
Entering Indian Cove should be done from the southern end, not thru the little channel north of Canoe Island, which is strewn with rocks. From the south, the only thing to worry about is that rock off the southwestern tip of Canoe Island - it's well-marked with kelp.
Anchorage is good in Indian Cove on a mud bottom which slopes up gently towards the shore without surprises.
Anchoring at the eastern end of the cove provides easier access to the county park, with its wonderful sandy public beach - one of the prime attractions of this anchorage.
However, even at the eastern end of the cove, you are looking straight down Upright Channel right out Cattle Pass and into the Strait of Juan de Fuca. This would not be a recommended anchorage if the wind were forecast to turn southerly.
