This is a local spot for us..some words of caution about this anchorage. Stay on the west/northwest side of the bight..close as possible to the fuel docks/bar if you are drawing anything 4ft and over. Do NOT cut Red marker “8″ to go in or you will be on the ground. The SE corner of the bight is SHALLOW…talking knee deep.. The line between the deep water and the shallows is a narrow one and shifts.
Best to enter this as if going to the fuel dock then turning out into the bay.

Keeping in mind all of the above it is an excellent spot with quick easy access to the Gulf, the river, or ICW/Pine Island sound. Holding is good and the warning above about strong SW winds is true and should be heeded. Tarpon Point marina has fair fuel prices but forget the “chandlery” and you may get sticker shock should you choose to eat atthe bar/restaurant

Hi from Kismet:
Florida: Anchorage-Cape Coral
In Cape Coral, Florida, a couple of miles up the Caloosahatchee River off the ICW, is Tarpon Point Marina. Just outside the marina basin is a well protected anchorage located in Glover Bight, it is highlighted in Skipper Bob’s book. We spent the night with only one other boat. It was quiet and surrounded by mangroves and birds.
Safe Cruising.

Glover Bight Anchorage – Once leaving Gasparilla Island we headed down to this anchorage to spend the next night. Once again, this was a fantastic spot which had deep water all the way in. Once again we had strong winds out of the East Northeast and this spot provided excellent protection. One other advantage of this spot is the excellent scenery in the area. One could easily spend an extra day or two kayaking the beautiful mangroves in the area as well as the many canals in Cape Coral.
