We frequently use this anchorage which is convenient at south end of the ditch. Minimum water is about 8 feet just behind marker 23. Good holding in either suggested anchorage. Were in there last week with 5 other boats.

We anchor here on a regular basis. It is a great location just prior to a northbound entry to the canal. Leave the ICW at marker 24 and you will see no less than 8 foot to the charted anchorage. Good holding in soft mud. It is exposed to the East – South but if it is really blowing you can find more shelter further up the creek. There is a small beach if you have pets. Verizon service comes and goes.

One of my favorite AICW anchorages, especially before/after transiting the mind-numbing Alligator-Pungo Canal. Always room for another boat even in Snowbird seasons. Great scenery and good holding ground (although I’ve never anchored here in more than 20 kts). Short trip between here and Belhaven, easy day to Oriental or the AICW anchorage off Adams Creek at Cedar Creek.

We anchored here on 5/11/10. We have anchored here just off the G23 on other occasions. This time we went about a mile up the river to the basin. We experienced good depths all the way to the basin. We found a couple of boats anchored along the way. we saw a few crab pots. Holding appeard to be good although one boat did make a couple of attempts before finding a good spot for their CQR. Nice quiet anchorage. A total of 10 boats in the anchorage between the basin and G23.

Many great spots to anchor, but if there is any wind coming up the throat (east) then you will be choppy for thie night unless you go way up the cove. Beautiful scenery

Pungo River we have stopped every year since 2006 including 7/23/2009. We just clear the channel if calm or go up farther is windy.
