Anchoring

Anchoring (non-regulated anchorage) is permitted, but not within 100 feet of the mooring field boundaries, and not within 50 feet of any other marine structure (such as private docks along the waterway).  Anchoring is also not permitted in the marked channel.  An ordinance (PDF) enacting a pilot program for anchoring and mooring was approved by the St. Augustine City Commission on December 12, 2011. For detailed information of this and additional anchoring guidelines, refer to our Pilot Program Brochure (PDF).
