        After our adventure we headed North via the ICW and many bridges in Ft. Lauderdale that we cleared at 22 ft. A few we had to wait on opening. At MM 1031 we anchored near the Lantana bridge on the South side in 7-8 ft near a restaurant , The Old Key Lime house http://oldkeylimehouse.com/
        A normal June afternoon rain shower came and went while we were there. A quiet anchorage.
        Easy in and out. A walk around to the other side of the bridge is a city park with boat ramp. Don’t go too far West after entering anchorage. We stayed opposite double boat ramps on shore near restaurant.

        Anchored there on way south and again on our trip back north last year. One of our enjoyable stops. We draw 5ft and had no problem but there are some high spots to avoid so I would advice circle around before dropping anchor and be mindful of tides. Enjoyed Old Key Lime restaurant and meet up with an old friend there I had not seen in more years then I want to say…LOL…a great stop if weather is right.

        Good holding, but you may get some wakes. However, the tiki bar on shore is worthwhile, with wifi, and good happy hours. Walk to town (one block) for library, drug store, restaurants.

        We tried to anchor there today (May 9, 2010) and had NO holding at all. 45 Lb CQR dragged through the black mud like there was no anchor on the chain! It did not jump, grab or anything, just ran along the bottom smooth as can be. We tried three times and gave up. At one point we had 90 feet of chain out. We continued north.

        Used this anchorage for the first time and found it to be a great place. Had heard of low water at entrance but found no problem on less than 1/2 tide. Even though it was Easter weekend the wakes never bothered us in here.

        This is one or our favorite anchorages along this stretch. We are usually the only boat anchored here. Once there was another boat which turned out to be people we knew! At close to high tide the center of the basin is over 13 feet. The only drawback is that boats passing on the ICW send in wakes. This isn’t a problem at night and not much on a weekday. A weekend might be another story. While the shore of the lake is all privately owned, there should be places out on the waterway to land a dinghy and dog.

        Moving north, Lake Boca Raton is a great anchorage – beware the hordes on weekends but few remain overnight – nice public dock you can use for your dinghy at Silver Palm Park adjacent to the first bridge heading north on the ICW tucked into the NW corner – not much nearby but a few stores and again the great beaches.

        Be careful entering this anchorage! We anchored here last night (2/28/12) and it is tricky to get into the anchorage. We entered just south of Marker 65 and almost went aground. The anchorage was crowded but everyone entered North of marker 65. We left the anchorage this morning North of the marker and had plenty of water. Nice anchorage It was crowded until dark with locals but we had a nice, quiet night.

        Earlier this week, while anchored in Boca Lake, we were approached by a Boca marine police officer. He said the town has imposed a 72 hour limit on anchoring. When we asked about how this squares with the recent news about State laws concerning anchoring, he said Boca Lake is a park and therefore covered by different laws. The office was very polite and cordial.

        Anchored here after a long day of bridges with 20 kts on the nose in the ICW. It was actually quite a pleasant anchorage. We anchored closer to the mouth of the “lake” with plenty of water for our 5 ft. draft. Would stop here again.
