Good protected anchorage. We stopped off on our way south from Charlotte Harbor area to get a slip and fill water, get pumped out, shower etc.. Very nice resort and marina. The new restaurant called Gather had great service, food, and prices. Even a great happy hour! We moved to the anchorage he next day. Marina staff very nice with the exception of the harbor master. He is very anti-anchorage people coming to the marina and gave us a hard time anytime he saw us on shore or with our dinghy. We were very put off by his attitude. You are supposed to be able to go shopping or to restaurants from the anchorage but marina will charge you a $20 "landing fee" to land your dinghy at their dock. They will reimburse you as long as you bring a receipt from a business. If you shower or bring trash ashore they keep the $20. He also grilled us on if we had left the property which apparently incurs another fee. We are not derelict cruisers and this would have all been fine with us except he treated us like unwanted riff raff even though we had spent a night in a slip and were spending money at the businesses. Rant over. The anchorage itself is very nice and a good stopping point heading north or south.
