Tarpon Springs City Marina is found a good distance upstream on the Anclote River, in the heart of downtown Tarpon Springs. It is a small, but friendly facility, and is only one of two that provide any sort of transient dockage within walking distance of the town’s business district.
We were in Tarpon Springs in May and stayed at the municiple marina. We draft 5′8″ and had no problems navigating up stream or down. We arrived early evening on the 15th and left the marina the afternoon of the 21st to anchor near the park at the river entrance. We spent two nights there on the hook before heading to Apalachicola.
