We can anchor E of Wisteria Island, to the W of the main ship channel, in minimum depth of 8 feet. 

Open to southern, northern and northeasterly winds.

Anchoring in the vicinity of Key West Bight Channel Light 2, between KeyWest Bight Channel and the shoreline, is not recommended because of poor holding ground, strong currents, and obstruction of the dock approaches.

Ouvert aux vents du S, du N et du NE.
