Pelican Bay – Cayo Costa Anchorage (Statute Mile 25)
I bet if I were to count, there have been more postings about the Pelican Bay Anchorage (immediately east of Cayo Costa) here on the Net’s “Western Florida” section, than any other haven on the WF coastline. That’s not be accident. This is a wonderful place to spend a night, or even a few day. Just watch out for the thin water at the bay’s entrance.
Pelican Bay – Park Service Docks Anchorage – After hearing so much about Cayo Costa and the beauty of this area we had to stop on the way back north. After spending the better part of a day there, I can totally understand the attraction. We were anchored with about 10 other boats in the area and were never cramped. Although I will have to agree that this would not be a great area in the summer months as the protection from wind is so good, the bugs would be a real problem. With that in mind, we certainly plan on spending more time there on another trip as we could easily spend several days there exploring the two islands and surrounding waters.
