I just came through there Saturday night coincidentally, in fairly heavy weather. I'm not that familiar with the area as I mostly stay west of Pensacloa, but we made the decision to go in through Carabelle.

If you do go through there, keep your speed up. You may need the momentum.

Carabelle? That's like a day west of PC, backside of Dog Island. Did you mistake Crooked Island for St George, in my first post?

We used to be homed in Apalachicola, and went through Sikes Cut in all sorts of inclement weather, day/night. It can definitely be dangerous if you don't pay attention. East Pass bewteen St. George and Dog is definitely a better option for people unsure of the area, and has some outstanding anchorage in it on the other side of Dog. Don't cut the western edge of Dog island too close, though, it goes from 20 feet to 2 feet pretty quick.

Hey man,

It was great to meet you and your wife when you came through New Orleans and I appreciate your help shaking up the fuel tank a few Wednesdays ago. Congrats on the Captains course and have a great trip south.

Things might have changed but when we were there a couple of years ago no one tried to get back into andrews bay via the pass at crooked island. Just going through the pass is risky . We went in there once and decided never again.

Thanks for the headsup, Moonsailer. Unless I get some first hand info saying how to do it, I'll avoid it.

Im a little late but I will put in my 2 cents anyway.

My boat is slipped in Panama City Marina and I am down there at least 3 weekends a month.

I do not think you can although I have not made the trip first hand. I have spoken to people who go there and I am pretty sure they go around the outside. I dont think there is a way there from the ditch either. I do not see a way there from east bay on google and I know that you cant get there going behind Shell Island.

I agree with avoiding it.

I also monitor 16 while out. Hail me if your out. At Your Service

Small is beautiful, simple, cheap, and easy......
