        Murphy Creek is at mile 83 and it was still early enough in the day to continue south. We briefly stopped at the dam on the Cross Florida Barge Canal at mile 89.

        We were there in November 2013. It is fine as an anchorage with no depth problems as long as you stay in the marked channel. We cruised the entire length of it and never saw less than 7 feet at any time. We did not stop here, but had it planned as an alternate if the weather turned bad. You will see wildlife here, but nothing like what you will see further south.
        If you are interested in our trip down the St. Johns, our blog is at http://www.wacithree.blogspot.com. The wildlife gets better and better the further south you go and reaches its peak in the Blue Springs area near DeLand and Hontoon Island State Park. Be sure your dinghy is ready to explore areas your boat will not be able to navigate and you will see a part of Florida that few cruisers have a chance to see. The St. Johns has been the highlight of our Loop so far. Check our blog for details.

        We have a 37′ trawler 3′ draft, 16′ beam. Murphy Creek is one of our favorite anchorages. We have traveled the entire Creek entering both the north & south and exiting both as well. The North entrance is shallower at times but stick to the chart.
        I have some amazing pictures from our times on anchor. Its a quiet peaceful anchor spot.
        We spent several months last year traveling the entire St. Johns after purchasing our boat. Its a great river.

        Last Thanksgiving we took a few days to explore the river south of Jacksonville to Sanford Fl. It was a beautiful trip. We would highly recommend Murphys Creek anchorage if you are heading to the springs. Great wildlife. The springs were very shallow and a challenge. Saw a couple of eagle and a large gator. Passing by Blue spings we did see a few manatee.
        This is a lovely trip.
