Now here’s a spot to anchor north of Jewfish Creek that I’ve never researched. We do recommend an anchorage farther to the north of Manatee Bay, but that haven is entered by an entirely different route than the one leading to the potential anchorage briefly described below.
To reach the anchorage recommended by Captain Espinosa, you must first pass between markers #1 and #2 north of Division Point and then anchor in the charted 4 to 5-foot pool of water beyond. Anyone else tried this – if so, PLEASE let us hear from you.
Adhering to our long standing policy, we will not consider entering this anchorage into our “Florida Keys Anchorage Directory” until we can research these waters in person!
Go thru the markers at Division Point into the southwest part of Manatee Bay. 4 to 5 foot depth and great shelter!!
