    Just an FYI for anyone planning to anchor Captiva Island – We recently anchored near the ‘Tween Waters Marina. The Waterway Guide does state correctly that the marina does not offer dingy docking to anyone on anchor.
    However it does state that you can take your dinghy to McCarthy’s Marina to tie up so you can go to shore for provisions. What it fails to mention is that McCarthy’s Marina charges $15.00 to dock your dink there! No matter how long you are going to leave it – it’s $15.00 flat fee! So for those of you that find yourself at Captiva Island and in need of provisions (beer?) – there is still hope. We took the dink to the Green Flash Restaurant’s dock. We enjoyed a couple of drinks at the bar and
    walked only a few blocks to the Island Store. The bartendar there was very friendly and had no problem with us leaving the dinghy. By the way, it looked like a great place to eat but we only went to the bar.
    Safe travels!

    Spent 2 nights here when a strong front came through. I drew 4 feet. Very secure, but be careful. When the winds swung around from SE to NE we moved from 5.5 feet of water to 4 feet and ended up on the bottom for a while. Also, for some reason Tween Waters is not too friendly with transients at anchor (they are great if you get a slip). The slips, however, are fully exposed to E winds and it can be rough when they get near 20.
