The Titusville mooring field lies south of the Titusville harbor entrance channel leading to Titusville Muncipal Marina, A SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR!. This report and photos came to us from Captains Mo and Mike.
We just cruised down from Ponce on the ICW – nice easy cruise (sans some giant powerboats that were kind enough to share giant wakes with us, then proceed to stop in the middle of the ICW at the turn, then cut in front of us at the bascule bridge!)
Ok, enough venting. We traveled on to Titusville and after reading info here and on another site, we learned that the anchorage now has a mooring field HOWEVER, you can anchor North of the mooring field if you draw around 4″6″ as we do. I suspect some boats here draw more. At low tide (.8) we had 5.5″ or better.
We just felt our way in and found a nice spot. A tad bumpy in a blow – it’s NNE about 15 today and bumpy but not uncomfortable. You’ll get damp on the way back out however…
It’s a bit of a dinghy ride to the marina and about 1/4 mile walk to the little grocery store which was very clean but limited selection.
Restaurant under the bridge is Crackerjacks and the fish tacos were great! Monday night is Trivia night – good crowd and very friendly staff. Enjoy – anchor and save your $15/20 [mooring fee] for your cocktails!
