    After clearing the railroad bridge by only 3 inches (thanks to lower water levels) we needed a place to stop and relax. Tied up to the dolphins but keep your hull away from them as they are tar impregnated and will mark the boat. Very secure and little boat traffic.

    Good hold on the dolphin on the east side of port mayaca lock. Noisy traffic during day. Exposed to wind but hold with 2 lines at stern or bow and one at the opposite it's a good hold

    If you arrive too late to lock through use the multiple pilings called Dolphins. Pay attention this works. Tie a very long bow line to forward piling cluster, back down to aft piling cluster and tie long line to it. Then take in slack on forward line and your boat is tied between the two dolphins, no drift, drag or swing. No current or tide. Also no shoreside access.
