Fanny Keys Anchorage (Marathon – North Shore – off Inside/ICW Florida Keys Route)

Well, I agree with Captain Ron’s comments below, and I don’t CLEARLY this is a fair weather only anchorage, and should not even be considered if there is hint of foul weather in the forecast. However, weather conditions permitting, we have dropped the hook here, and spent a few very happy evenings.

I wonder who calls Fanny Keys an anchorage? It’s just a spot on the bayside intercoastal to drop your hook like any other basically open anchorage. Plenty of current, boat traffic from Faro Blanco Marina, no protection from Florida Bay/Gulf winds. You really can’t anchor between the two little nubs/keys(?). Looks good on the chart, but don’t be disappointed if you arrive late after a long sail. The joke will be on you!
