Charlotte Harbor is shallow but great for sailing with care of depths.
Stayed last year at Fishermens Village Marina. Excellent marina, great service, great location. Excellent for live aboards. Good access to the Gulf in three or four hours. Most popular destination is Pelican Bay, close to Cayo Costa State Park and Boca Grande Pass.
How shallow? We have a 4'9" keel...is that safe for the whole harbor in the winter blowout tides? Or will days be off limits?
