        Big Bayou is suggested as an alternative anchoring spot to Vinoy Basin. However, I have looked for but not found definitive information regarding anchoring restrictions in Big Bayou. GIS map indicates Big Bayou is within the St. Petersburg City Limits so I presume ordinance 23H would apply. Does this mean anchoring here is prohibited for cruisers and if so, what are the prohibitions? I cruise year round and am considering St. Petersburg as a destination in 2014 primarily because it is rarely affected by hurricanes.
