Report from Southern Mooring Field, St. Augustine, FL, AICW Statute Mile 778

The two St. Augustine mooring fields lie just north and south of the Bridge of Lions and Capt. Miller relays local advice for entering the southern mooring field.

We picked up a mooring in the southern field on April 2nd, 2012.
Approaching from the south, we turned into the mooring field just north of R “10″. The chart and plotter both showed good water but we hit bottom and turned back into the channel (we draw 4.5′). The dockmaster (channel 71) told me to stay in the channel until abeam the northern end of the field before turning in.
Be aware that the water taxi only runs every two hours on the even hours and the last chance to return to your boat is 6:00 pm. If your crew is threatening mutiny, there is a liquor store across from the fort.
The mooring fee is $21.20 per night.
