We're currently anchored out in North Palm Beach. Looking for an anchorage area south of here that has reasonable access (20 minute walk?) to the ocean for swimming. We've heard No Name Harbor (Bill Baggs State Park) is nice, but costs $15 a night. Has anyone anchored outside of No Name? Any Bicayne Bay advice in general, or somewhere else in South Florida that's close to the ocean? Thanks!

You can use the Marine Stadium, though it can be noisy on weekends.

thanks. We draw 5'6" and that looks kind of dicey. Also looking for someplace quiet...I know we're asking a lot-- Florida, winter, quiet....

Forgive my ignorance, but if you're anchored out.....shouldn't you already be very NEAR the ocean?

Lettuce Lake in Pompano, you can anchor either side of the canal. You get some wakes, especially on weekends but there is a park you can tie the dink up to just inside the inlet on the east side and then it's a 3 minute walk to the beach. There's also a good little restaurant and a laundry within a block.

Now we're talking... I'll look up Lettuce Lake.

As far as being anchored out-- we're in a cove of the ICW, very near a really nice beach that's extremely hard to get to, if you don't have a car...
