How to reach: To reach the tidal bench marks on Barren Island (which is approximately 35 km (22 mi) SW of Cambridge and about a 10-minute boat ride from the fishing creek at a small boat dock at Tyler Cove) from the boat dock near Honga, go WSW by boat following a narrow channel until the bay waters are entered. Continue westerly until the last bouy light, then make a wide turn south (sunken obstructions near Barren Island) for approximately 1.3 km (0.8 mi) passing the NW corner of the island. Continue 0.3 km (0.2 mi) south along the west side of the island, then turn east and proceed with caution to the island.
