At Jacobs Bay there is a wharf with picnic grounds, toilets, fresh water and camping space on the foreshore. The wharf has only two meters of water at its outermost end at LW.
Boats drawing more than one meter should not attempt to tie alongside the wharf after half tide. There is a combined club mooring laid to the south of the wharf.
Jacobs Bay is a satisfactory anchorage in winds from the western semi-circle but is open particularly to SW winds and washes from passing boats.
