    Was a little tight to swing on the hook for a 40'.
    But was very pleased that the current was minor at best. Good spot to drop the hook for the night if the winds are light.

    I use this anchorage every time I travel the ICW. It breaks up the trip between two shallow areas: Isle of Palms and McClellanville since it’s hard to get through both areas the same day on a high tide.

    I can take Hoolie, my dog, back to the entrance to a pebble beach across the ICW for relief. There’s room for a hundred boats without getting crowded in 10 ft water. The anchor comes up clean in the morning but holds well during the night.

    I use this anchorage all the time. It's convenient for staging for tide through the shallow areas. There is shore access for pets at an oyster pile at the eastern end of the anchorage at any time other than high tide. At extreme high tides, there is shore access by the entrance and if that is not to your liking, there are public docks about a mile down the ICW towards Charleston.

    A very good anchorage, plenty of water, good swing room, only a few bugs, a few small boats transit through at speed but no issues and anchor comes up clean even though holding is excellent. Boat position will reverse in a good current.
