    Great spot if your draft is <5 feet. Dingy to great restaurants and watering holes. “Shrimpers” in the SW corner handles our 25′ nano-trawler easily. Generally better fuel prices here than nearby.

      Gas prices are cheaper the deeper you go into the pocket. Christmas week 2014.

      Great breakfast place whistle stop on the main street (A1A? I don’t recall, ask anyone) short walk from the end of the canal by Manatee Island bar and grill, tiki hut style bar (fun place).

      Twisted Tuna restaurant, great, really great sushi, at the head of the same canal, behind the second anchorage-deeper into the pocket.

      The Grove for your eye opener hole in the wall place.

      Other restaurants we did not have enough time in the pocket.
