We visited Joe Sound in North Long Island for a week at the end of March, 2013.  This is one of our favorite anchorages.  The entrance is narrow and difficult to enter, but once in Joe Sound, we were one of eight boats in a deep anchorage running between the shore and sand bars.  Four boats were empty the whole time we were there.  At low tide the sound is mostly sand bars and at high tide they all disappear and it’s a beautiful bay.  We swam, kayaked, took dinghy rides around Joe Sound and to Cape Santa Maria, watched sunsets over Exuma Sound and enjoyed the tranquility of a peaceful, quiet anchorage.
