Watch your charts and go in from Moser Channel. We stay alongside the bridge until in deeper water just N of the larger Molasses Key and anchor at about 24 41.296N, 081 11.352W. That's in front of the larger island, but we dinghy in to the smaller island just to it's west. In smaller boats you can go right up to the sand flats on the North side of that smaller island. WATCH THE CURRENT in the small channels - it rips. We have anchored the big boat in those, but I'm getting too old for that. It has a scoured bottom with poor holding and fast currents. For us it's better to anchor just North of the larger island with less current and better holding in about 7' of water.
