Anchoring inside the harbor...
The anchorage area is located on the
starboard side of the harbor as you enter (west to
northwest side of the harbor). The
anchorage area inside Three Mile Harbor offers
plenty of depth and swing room. There is a
sand and mud bottom offering a good holding
In order to gain access to the anchorage you
will need to follow the channel deep into the
harbor. There is a long sandbar just
beyond the red channel markers. Crossing
over the sandbar at the northern parts of the
harbor is practically impossible, even in a
small dinghy. You will need to pass the
red channel marker "22" before turning
into the anchorage. Once inside the
anchorage you will find an ample amount of water
with a good holding ground for anchoring.
There is a water ski area that you can not
anchor in and may want to avoid due to boat
wakes. The northern and northwest corners
of the anchorage area become very shallow (3-5
feet), so larger vessel will want to stay in the
middle of the anchorage.
