This view of the Pohnpei anchorage was taken by the crew of "Stardancer II" from the patio of a restaurant. The main docks are visible in the distance on the right side. The big ships of the tuna fishing fleet (purse seiners up to 300 feet long and their larger "mother ships") cannot come into the shallows of the inner anchorage but anchor inside the barrier reef near Sokehs Rock.
