Cooper Island’s Manchioneel Bay features on many sailing itineraries as a natural stop along the Sister Island chain leading to The Baths at Virgin Gorda. We are an easy reach from Tortola – ideal for your first night aboard or your last stop before returning your boat in the morning.

Moor-Seacure Ltd own and operate 30 moorings in Manchioneel Bay suitable for vessels up to 60ft in length and 20 net tons. Mooring balls are available on a first-come basis only and cannot be reserved in advance. Anchoring is only permitted outside the mooring field beyond the sea grass. Manchioneel Bay is one of the Department of Conservation & Fisheries’ Sea Grass monitoring sites and crucial to the health of the marine environment.
