    We anchored here last night March 22 2015 & had a quiet night. This morning a storm rolled in, squall line with winds gusting to 30 & our holding was good. We anchored at the intersection of the canal with the little white bridge, and depths were around 5′-6’2, the closer you go west towards marina, we found to be shallower, 4’5 depending on tide. Nice quiet anchorage, did a dingy ride into 7-11 for ice, trash and a $3 bottle of dressing. 6 oz!! Paying for convenience I know….

    We have a 37ftO’Day CC with a 5ft draft. We spent a quiet night in this anchorage back on Friday night just before last Memorial Day weekend. It’s just inside the John’s Pass bridge. Well protected. We have a 5ft draft and saw depths to 5ft 2in. The charts show 4 to 6 ft depths with a soft mud bottom. There are a couple of public type parks on the south side of this anchorage if you want to dingy in. It is walking distance to John’s Pass shops and restauarants.
