Good Words for Bells River Anchorages, AICW Statute Mile 716.5

Bells River Ancjorages - Click for Chartview

These anchorages are located along the splintered course of Bells River – this stream intersects the AICW abeam of the Fernandina Beach, Florida waterfront, hard by marker #10.

We have anchored our 60′ LOA Hatteras with plenty of room in the north/south stretch of Bells River three times, twice below the charted shallow spot and once above. This is one of our favorite stops and we coincidentally rode out some bad weather in the fall of 2008 there. As noted there are some soft places, so take the time to get a good set.
Great dinghy dock facility [at nearby Fernandina Harbor Marina – editor], but be courteous and check in with the marina. We had a very good experience with the marina when our generator had an issue, they quickly made a spot for us and got us a local tech pronto.
