        I was warned by the marina of a lot of crap on the bottom. My anchor got fouled on long lengths of scrap electrical cable. You may want to put a note of caution on this anchorage. Am currently up the Wando river, very good holding.

        The northernmost anchorage, closest to the City Marina (and their dinghy dock) has the shallowest water during tidal range. Holding ground is pluff mud, but great for catamarans. Off the City Marina you will find deeper water, but strong currents, and it tends to get crowded during the seasons. If you go under the 56′ bridge, you will find it much less crowded, though a much further dinghy ride to the City Marina dinghy dock. The Harborage on the Ashely River (former Ashley Marina) does not offer service to cruisers at anchor.
