Cayo Costa Charlotte Harbor

Looking for current info on water depth going into the anchorage at cayo costa near the mouth of charlotte harbor, sw florida.
Low tide is in the morning when we'd want to leave, mid tide is late afternoon.
Thanks

We were there a couple months ago, no problem with a 4'3" draft. Stay about 100' off shore from the big sign all the way in. We left a low tide and carried at least 1' under the keels.

I've heard the channel is only about 50' off the sign. We need 5'6"+
Thanks

I don't have any current depth info for you, but we've been to Cayo Costa twice (most recently in Dec. of 2010) and absolutely love the place. Have a great trip!
