The anchorage described below lies off the eastern half of the Whale Harbor Channel, and is entered from the Florida Keys Inside/ICW route. We have always found the swing room here to be limited, but clearly Captain Erwan did not suffer from this problem.
Very nice anchorage, quiet compared to the one on the other side of the Wilson Key. The bottom is very soft mud, so not very good in strong wind. Don’t go too far inside the bay, it becomes shallow very fast.
We anchored there to visit the `Theater of the Sea’. It’s at a walking distance from the shore where it’s easy to dinghy. Ice, small grocery and Tiki bar very close.
