    We anchored here for the second time on 3/4/21. We love the Old Key Lime House. The restaurant has a dinghy dock and friendly staff. Great food and drink at a having fun casual place. We read that you are only allowed to anchor here for 18 hours, but we spoke with a local boater and he had no knowledge about that. There were four other boats when we set the hook at 1300. We didn't leave until the next morning at 0930 and no one enforced any 18 hour rule as far as I could tell since the other boats were all still there at that time too.
    We anchored in 6 feet very close to the anchor spot marked on Navionics. It would be a little shallow for deeper draft vessels to the south of that. We experienced excellent holding and protection from the NNW wind. Ground tackle came up shiny and clean!

    There is free Wifi from the bar, decent happy hour, park to empty trash. Dingy to bar and park, can walk to some stores about a block west. Gets calm after dark.

    There room for a half dozen boats in 8 to 10 ft of water. The anchorage is best for winds out of the north, it's rocky with a south wind. There is shore access at the public dock by the anchorage. The nearby restaurant, The Old Key Lime House, has a dinghy dock if you eat there (no pets allowed at the restaurant). We anchored just to the west of the wreck marked on the chart (we passed right over the mark, no change in reading).
