[EXPIRED] Shoaling at Wiggins Pass, Western Florida Coastline, South of Caloohatchee River, July 19, 2012

One of the most shoal prone inlets on the Western Florida coastline, Wiggins Pass, cuts the coast between Gordon Pass and Fort Myers Beach. This channel is often dredged, but by the time the dredge disappears of the horizon, the sand is silting back in once again.
After reading the announcement below, cherry picked from the latest Notice to Mariners, looks like it’s time to give the dredging contractors some more business.
In the meantime, we strongly recommend calling Pelican Isle Yacht Club at 239-566-1606 for up-to-date depth information BEFORE attempting entry.

FLORIDA-FORT MYERS TO CHARLOTTE HARBOR AND WIGGINS PASS: Shoaling.
The Coast Guard received a report of shoaling in the vicinity of Wiggins Pass. Vessels transiting the area are recommended to have a draft of 3ft or less. Mariners are advised to transit the area with extreme caution. Chart 11427
