We are anchored in Key West right now for Fantasy Fest.

The anchorage you want is just west of Flemming Key (24 34' 13.92" N 81 48' 05.81" W). This is not a designator anchorage so there isn't a wake zone.

The depth is fine. We are anchored in 21' of water. The holding can be tricky. We have a 60 lb Bruce and have never dragged here, but we did have to try twice this last time to get it to grab. We have seen plenty of others drag here so be aware. There is a strong current coming from around Flemming and the "harbor" isn't well protected at all.
