    This anchorage has a beautiful view. It has plenty of room and depth (10 feet) for several larger vessels. We had good holding over night with moderately strong easterly winds. I would highly recommend this anchorage.

    Great anchorage as long as wind is out of the north and/or east. In fact, much nicer to anchor here than to sit in a rolly slip at Cabbage Key if any decent wind is coming from north and/or east. With west winds call for a slip.

    Anchor outside the channel in 8-10 feet over sand and gravel. We anchored here one night in 30 knots steady and 50 knot gusts and held tightly on a 12/1 scope. After the blow, things settled down and the next afternoon we went to Cabbage Key by dingy for a “Cheeseburger in Paradise.” A real old time Keys bar if you need some socialization.
