    • [EXPIRED] Apalachicola Cruising News

      Wish I could have been at the Apalachicola Seafood Festival along with Captain Bob. Also, some great cruising suggestions contained in this note!

      We just returned from another gathering at Apalachicola–it is a great town–and destination.  There is a brand new hotel on Water Street–and it is very nice–but full for the Sea Food Festival (we were there last year–and the festival was a lot of fun, but very crowded.
      There is an alternative anchorage, which I think is much better than in the river or one of the sloughs–that is up Scipio Creek, at the commercial basin, there is a fairly good sized protected area, with 6 foot depths and mud bottom.  We left our dinghy at the launch ramp and it appeared safe.  There is a Park Service building up there and a parking lot, as well as the launching ramp.   (I must say that we found gasoline about a dollar more expensive, than Rich found Diesel yesterday).
      There were not as many boats headed South this year as last–but that is a general observation–and may not be valid…
