""Well, the dredging of Matanzas River in the vicinnity of Fort Matanzas is finally complete. You now have 14+ feet depth in the middle of the river at low tide. don't try to find the bouys and day marks that show on your charts or on your GPS - They're not there anymore. Just proceed "up the middle" and you'll be fine.
Capt. Jon - Palm Coast""
Thanks to Capt Jon.
Now, listen up folks::: while it is called Matanzas Inlet on your charts/GPS it, for all practicality, can't be used by ""ANY sail boat"" or any Power Boat.......... Very low bridge that you just can not get under.
That said, it is a great Ancorage now that it's been dredged, from the I.C.W. side. One of Mary and my favorite 'Water Side" Restaurants is there. Matanzas Inlet restaurant...... There's no dock but a great little beach at the Restaurant you can pull your Dink up on.... Try the Steamed Oysters for a starter while you look out over the anchourage.... Capt. Gene
