My wife and I used this spot a lot, earlier this year. We watched a family of Manatees feeding for most of the day. The [semi-sunken] sailboat [which used to lie in these waters] has now been taken away.

This is a popular anchorage. We have stayed here three times, most recently 3/21/2010. It gave us good protection from SE to SW winds but when the wind shifted to NW it got a little bumpy. On a good day, it is fun to take the dink through the opening in the mangroves into Tarpon Bay to see the birds. An abandoned sailboat is lying on its side near the shore on the eastern side of the anchorage.
