        Anchored here last month and again last night in our 54′ motor yacht with 4.5′ draft. We found a spot about 200 yards back from the entrance near the charted 14′ area on the west side. Holding was good in 10-15K winds and one 180 degree tidal swing. Not much small boat traffic or waking from the main river channel, but still pretty exposed. Fun watching the container ships loading/unloading across the river. Could easily accommodate vessels to 60 feet. Anchor came up clean as a whistle in the morning.

        Stayed on anchor here March-September of 2011. If you google “trout river bridge” and “death” “murder” “drowning” or any other bad thing there are a lot. This is not a nice neighborhood. beware the tides push through the bridge at 4-7 knots and I have seen several boats get sideways on the pilings. Park your boat far enough out to be beyond swim range (100 yds. +), or the locals will get drunk or high and board your boat. The marina docks have liveaboards that keep an eye out, make friends. There are multiple derelict, sinking vessels and shipwrecks. Now the good: it’s right infront of the zoo and vessels that arrive to the docks get free access to the zoo, and it is my favorite hurricane hole for st johns river, just watch out when the hurricanes come every boat on the river not in protected waters will try to anchor there and usually 1-2 of them end up on the beach due to insufficient bottom gear so “know your surroundings”.
