AngelFish creek


I am planning to cross Angelfish creek from west to east with my Dufour 35 foot 6 feet draft, 50 feet mast. Would I have any problems? how and when should I do it?

Re: AngelFish creek

No problems...shallowest part is on the seaward side but like all shallow channels half tide rising is a good time giving you half a tide to kedge off if you go aground.

I have done it several times at night but you do have to pay attention.

I have heard if you drop anchor in that area you should be prepared to be boarded. Reports of drug traffic in that area in the past.

I went through in Jan. of this year from Key Largo. I only draw 4' but have a 62' mast. Watch the tides & have a good sail.

Re: AngelFish creek

One off the better pl aces to anchor , you can tug into side channels to avoid boat traffic,
but not planes move in and out on high tide hawks channel side gets tight close to 6' at second last eastern markers.enjoy Isaid that because itis snowing here now.
