These are my old cruising grounds and yes, there are a multitude of wonderful anchorages. The "ditch", however, the ICW
, is very tedious and very shallow, so you might want to think about staying "outside" as much as you can. With 4 1/2 feet of draft
we found it difficult and bumped quite a bit; 5' is that much worse.
There are quite a bit of crab pots on that coast so you will want to be careful doing night sailing -- stay well offshore
and make sure you have a rope cutter
on your prop shaft, and snorkel gear
handy just in case.
