Good Anchorages in the Middle-Lower Keys

Hello:
I'm sailing solo from Key Largo to KW and back and was wondering if anyone has some good GPS spots along the way for good anchoring. Preferably Bahia Honda area and lower. Thank you all. gh

Look at Geiger Key

I'v tried several time to find anchorages below Bahi Honda. They all are too exposed for my taste. However, you might look at charts for Geiger Key. There is a marina there, Geiger Key Marina, with bulkhead tie-ups. I visited there by land so I don't know particulars. But I know that an old singlehander is anchored behind the mangroves nearby beyond the marina.

The marina is a taste of old Florida Keys that is fast drifting away. It has an open air bar and grill. If you search Yahoo maps for bars (I think), the marina shows up. You'll have to compare to charts to get Lat/Lon. I know the channel going in is marked because we kayaked in the area.

Good luck,

Max
