        Looks like most of the mooring are stored behind the dumpsters.
        There are about 15 in the field, a long way from the tiny dinghy dock. Went in one day and a 14 ft sailing trihull was straddling the dinghy dock. Since I was going to be on land a few days, I asked about leaving my dinghy someplace out of the way. The guy said leave it where it was.
        Watch your depth near the dinghy dock ramp.

        Titusville anchorage near bridge and “Cracker Jacks Restaurant” – great anchorage – lousy restaurant. Been twice, place is always filthy and the staff could care less if you were there – they cater to the regulars. Food… skip it and drink bottled beverages. Not a clean place at ALL.

        Winds from the northeast are the worst, but expect a very wet ride to the marina if there is any wind because if your moored you are atleast 1/4 mile from the dock/shore. The monthly rates are currently 165$ month, but if stopping for the night make sure to go north of the field (1 mile dinghy to marina) and drop anchor. Hope your dinghy motor starts:)

        This is not a great place in a Norther . We were working on our boat in Westland Marina and on the morning of the 13th of Nov saw that 3 sailboats had been blown ashore and the rest on the moorings and in the anchorage were having a wild time of riding the storm . So if you have to be in Titusville, when a Norther is forecast, anchoring is not a good idea; picking up a mooring is safer, but the The Westland Marina would be your best choice for comfort since even the Municipal Marina can be a bit rolly facing the channel entrance.

        We just cruised down from Ponce on the ICW – nice easy cruise (sans some giant powerboats that were kind enough to share giant wakes with us, then proceed to stop in the middle of the ICW at the turn, then cut in front of us at the bascule bridge!)
        Ok, enough venting. We traveled on to Titusville and after reading info here and on another site, we learned that the anchorage now has a mooring field HOWEVER, you can anchor North of the mooring field if you draw around 4″6″ as we do. I suspect some boats here draw more. At low tide (.8) we had 5.5″ or better.
        We just felt our way in and found a nice spot. A tad bumpy in a blow – it’s NNE about 15 today and bumpy but not uncomfortable. You’ll get damp on the way back out however…
        It’s a bit of a dinghy ride to the marina and about 1/4 mile walk to the little grocery store which was very clean but limited selection.
        Restaurant under the bridge is Crackerjacks and the fish tacos were great! Monday night is Trivia night – good crowd and very friendly staff. Enjoy – anchor and save your $15/20 [mooring fee] for your cocktails! 🙂

        The Titusville moorings are sitting in the middle of the river and it can get pretty rough when the winds blow from almost any direction. That makes it pretty tough to get in and out of a dinghy and makes for a very wet ride to shore.

        Thank you for posting my comment here. If they can make a mooring field with no moorings and tell you not to anchor here, they might do it elsewhere. I understand that Titusville may be installing more moorings in the future but until then they should not be able to restrict anchoring if you are not near there existing moorings. I anchored right in the middle of the marked field and was no where near a moored boat.

        I anchored there, nowhere near any moorings then noticed all the yellow markers out to the channel and to the bridge. There seems to be no moorings in most of the marked area. Can they tell us we cant anchor in a marked mooring area if there are no moorings near you. I called the marina to ask and was told I could not anchor there because its a mooring field. When I mentioned that there were no moorings they said there was seagrass. Is this there latest trick.

        Titusville has a new mooring field, the rates are $15 /day or $290 a month. There is still plenty of room to anchor north of the mooring field. The staff there has always been friendly and still goes out of it’s way to serve its customers. A short walk from the marina is the Southern Room bar on Washington St or the Crackerjack out on the pier under the bridge. Both of these are good to spend a few hours in enjoying the ambiance.

        Passed by the Titusville mooring field this morning. They opened in October 2011, and have 50 moorings that accommodate boats up to 60′ on a first come, first served basis. Particulars can be fould on their web site regarding fees, etc. There was one boat in the mooring field, with about 15-20 anchored north of the mooring field. Also had a comment when I called that since the new high rise bridge opened they have seen fewer boats stopping. The old swing bridge went on restriction at 1530, so it became a short day.

        Too bad the above reporter missed “Cafe Chocolat” and two other restaurants (closed, when we were there, for the Thanksgiving weekend). We ate lunch at Cafe Chocolat and recommend it highly for quality, service, and value for money. There’s also a good used bookstore just down the street from Cafe Chocolat (and across the street from one of the two closed night spots). Granted the Save-a-Lot is not the greatest grocery around, although we found some things we wanted and which fit our needs. There is bus service to additional shopping. Ask at the marina office about where the bus stops, etc.
