    A good stopover but make sure your hook is set – I dragged in February but had a soft landing next to the marsh and simply backed out. There is NO access except the south arm of the inlet – there is no water in the north part of the loop. Just go near the green marker and head east until you find a spot you like.

    I anchored at pine island loop on April 17 [2013] coming in from the south. Found 8 ft at low water and anchored to watch the birds. We use this anchorage routinely on our annual pilgrimage to the keys from Brunswick Landing Marina.

    When we arrived on 4/20/10, we found 3 sailboats and a trawler already there and all the prime spots taken. We took the last spot, out near the channel. Two other trawlers came later, looked for a spot, but finally gave up and proceeded back down river looking for an anchorage.
    Some shoaling at entrance. Buggy if winds are calm and especially if you turn lights on inside. Good holding.

    Good anchorage, but anchor farther in if your concerned about the occasional wake. Quiet, no traffic after sunset.

    Anchored here April 6, 2010 with seven other boats. Wind was East in afternoon about 15K but died down at night. No-see-ums in the morning. Nice peaceful anchorage

    In November 2009, we anchored in 12 feet of water with 7 other boats. Holding was very good and there were no mosquitoes. Wind was SE 10 to 12 kts.
