Lacking the experience to navigate the Pearl River, western captains would stop in Macao to hire Chinese pilots to continue their journey to Whampoa Island, today known as Pazhou Island, the deep-water anchorage and loading point for western fleets. From here, the final leg of the journey to shore would be by Chinese sampan.
