Local Advice for Entering Glover Bight Anchorage, off the Caloosahatchee River/Okeechobee Waterway

Glover Bight Anchorage - Click for Chartview

The entrance channel to the Glover Bight Anchorage also eventually leads to Tarpon Point Marina. If you have not been here for a few years, you’ll be amazed at the huge condos that now surround the dockage basin.

This is a local spot for us..some words of caution about this anchorage. Stay on the west/northwest side of the bight..close as possible to the fuel docks/bar if you are drawing anything 4ft and over. Do NOT cut Red marker “8″ to go in or you will be on the ground. The SE corner of the bight is SHALLOW…talking knee deep.. The line between the deep water and the shallows is a narrow one and shifts.
Best to enter this as if going to the fuel dock then turning out into the bay.
Keeping in mind all of the above it is an excellent spot with quick easy access to the Gulf, the river, or ICW/Pine Island sound. Holding is good and the warning above [in an earlier posting] about strong SW winds is true and should be heeded. Tarpon Point marina has fair fuel prices but forget the “Chandlery” as you may get sticker shock should you choose to eat at the bar/restaurant.
