We were going to check out Matanzas Inlet but local TowBoat US knowledge says NO WAY, NOT Navigable.
Sailing on Sat the 26th of October 13.
Definitely NOT Matanzas. local Daytona boats use Rockhouse as weekend picnic and swim/fish anchorage
otherwise come back a bit north inside the ICW
to Daytona where there are plenty of spots around including in front of where we live, just north of Seabreeze Bridge, Halifax
Harbor marina is good For overnighting too and usually has plenty of space and some boats anchor
south of there outside about half a mile also closer to Ponce some stop temporarily just out of the channel above Dunlawton Bridge in Port Orange
