Manatee Bay Anchorage (north of Jewfish Creek, off Barnes Sound)

Posted by Claiborne Young | Posted on 12-01-2011

The anchorage commented on below by Captain Espinosa is entered by way of the charted channel north of the charted “Cormorant Rookeries.” You then break off from the charted track and anchor on the waters to the north in 4 to 5 feet. Vessels which draft 4 feet or more need not apply!

This is a great bay with lots of room to shelter from any wind direction. The bay has a good controlling depth of 4 tp 5 ft. You can take the Glades canal all the way in to South Dade Marina, which caters to sailboats. Not much there but great shelter. Good Trout fishing also.
