The waters comprising the approaches to the St. Croix River are Quoddy Roads, Lubec Narrows, Friar Roads, and Passamaquoddy Bay (Chart 801). The principal entrance is around the northern end of Campobello Island through Head Harbor Passage, and is deep and generally clear. The channel through Lubec Narrows is also frequently used, especially at high water. The tidal currents are strong, and sailing vessels can make no headway beating against them.

Quoddy Roads lies between the southwestern end of Campobello Island and West Quoddy Head; it is the usual anchorage for vessels seeking shelter against northerly and westerly winds or waiting for a favorable tide to pass through Lubec Narrows. The entrance between Liberty Point Ledge and West Quoddy Head is about 34 mile wide, with a least depth of 28 feet (8.5 m.) near the middle of the entrance; the best water leads about 14 mile eastward of West Quoddy Head. The anchorage affords shelter against all but east and southerly winds in 12 to 25 feet (3.7 to 7.6 m.) ; vessels anchored here for shelter when the wind hauls eastward get under way and pass through Lubec Narrows to the anchorage in Johnson Bay. The northern and western parts of the roads between West Quoddy Head and Lubec are full of shoals, partly bare at low water, on which are numerous fish weirs.

West Quoddy Head, on the western side of the entrance of Quoddy Roads, is high and wooded. West Quoddy Head Lighthouse, a red and white horizontally banded tower at the eastern end, is the most prominent mark. The light is fixed white, 83 feet (25.3
