Culdaff Bay

Tides and tools
Overview





Culdaff Bay is situated on the north coast of Ireland about midway between Malin Head and Inishowen Head on the Inishowen Peninsula. The bay offers one of the best anchorages along this coast, with visitor moorings off Culdaff's Bunnagee Pier, and with the possibility for shallower draft vessels to come alongside, in an attractive location with a village nearby.

Culdaff is a good anchorage that affords shelter and protection from winds from south-southeast through south to the north-northwest. Strong external tidal streams that pass outside, keep down the swell inside the bay. The wide bay that is free from outlying dangers offers straightforward access at all states of the tide.
Please note

Although out of the run of the tide a boat can be tide rode in Culdaff causing it to roll uncomfortably sometimes.
