Re: Anchoring in Daytona Halifax river

I've anchored south of the bridge on the east side of the ICW across from the marina before, but there's a fairly shallow bar you have to cross to get from the ICW channel into the anchorage area.....I only draw 4'-6" and saw only a foot under the keel coming out of the channel, The water was 8-10 feet deep where I anchored.

South of the marina on the west side of the ICW by the boat ramp there's a deeper anchorage area....usually has more boats but way easier to access with your draft.
