We spent three nights anchored off York Island, close to St. James City 11/23/10. Winds from NE and NW but didn’t seem too rolly to me. Tried Chino first but quite rough, open, and didn’t care for the ugly view of the power lines. Liked York Island anchorage. Many manatee and porpoise around. Easy trip to restaurants–and Waterfront Restaurant close and allowed dogs outside. Everyone friendly. Anchorage has space for many boats and whole area is deep if you don’t get too close to shore. We took dinghy across to Tarpon Bay and fish were everywhere.

Anchored there on 11/12/10. Wind 10-15 out of NE. A bit rolly. Need N winds for it to be a calm spot. You can dinghy into St. James City which has a couple of restaurants on the canals. Not much to see, though.

We anchored here and found the holding fine, plenty of room and not much traffic to rock the boat. It was a nice place. We expected a front to come through but we ended up with just a slight breeze.

If you need a bit more shelter, you can, with 5′ draft, follow the marked channel up into St James City, and, keeping the dredged canals to your starboard, proceed straight ahead into Long Cut. Good anchoring in about 7 to 8 ft for some distance past the last north-south canal, but don’t venture in too far. Right now you’ll see a couple of sailboats in there, but they’re really shoal draft, and I would stay about half the distance to them.

I have anchored near here (closer to the inlet into St. James City) with a slight breeze all night and under a full moon and it was fantastic.
Very little boat traffice going in and out of the inlet. A Sheriff’s Deputy did check up on us in the morning asking how long we were going to be there. Not sure what her motives were because she never asked to come aboard.
She was seen checking out another sailboat nearby.
