        This is a great anchorage – Terra Ceia Bay is quite deep behind this island and it’s very quiet and peaceful without a lot of boat traffic. Nothing nearby to dinghy for supplies, but if you want a quiet anchorage, probably by yourself, this place is great! Follow the zig-zag channel closely as it gets shallow in some spots.

        We sail a Catalina 36 and have stayed at bird key and in the North end many times. Great anchorages.

        The three anchor rating of this anchorage is justified with the exception of the poorly marked large sunken poweryacht at the south edge of this anchorage which presents an underwater hazard to vessels drawing three feet or more.
