We have anchored here several times in the past when the wind was from the right direction (south to southwest). Just follow depths on chart. This April, with strong winds from the west to northwest forecast, we decided to go up the upper Alligator for an anchorage. A GPS helps on this trip. We anchored up past Cherry Ridge Landing in 10 feet of water.

We anchored north of G43 in August 2008 and June 2009. Lots of mosquitoes and flies both times, so we used our hatch screens and stayed inside. Not the most protected place we’ve been but better than it looks on the chart.
