ICW Anchorage South – Claiborne’s Review

Several potential anchorages lie along the AICW’s western and southerly flanks between markers #134 and #140. Depths consistently run at least 6 feet or better on all the havens. Just be sure to stay well away from the surrounding shoreline. Depths shelve quickly upward as the banks are approached.
Note that all three of these anchorages are wide open to wakes produced by larger power vessels passing on the nearby ICW. We were once rudely awakened here at 4:00 A.M. by a 65-foot Hatteras cruising by at top speed.
For those piloting boats drawing 4 feet or less, you might consider the waters southeast of #138. While we have never sounded nothing less than 6 feet while entering and leaving this haven, the 4-foot sounding noted on chart 12206 just to the east, is cause enough for our additional concern. This spot is well sheltered to the southwest, but still offers no shelter to the north and east.
