        Between Marathon and Key West, anchor in Newfound Harbor. It’s huge and well protected from all waves. If you scuba, go to Looe Key Reef there. It is really nice, and there’s a dive boat that goes through Newfound Harbor to the reef that’ll pick you up and drop you off at your anchored boat. Or just go out to the gov’t. mooring balls on the reef (carefully) in your own boat.

        Last night we stayed in Newfound Harbor. It is a very protected anchorage and there were 7 other boats in there with us. Just be careful and watch your depth finder. There are some shallow places. There were several sailboats and they draw much more than we do (about 3.5 ft.).
        It as a great, close by, anchorage after diving/snorkeling off Looe Key. Just look for the weather/radar blimp (called Fat Albert) you can’t miss it.
