Ft Myers to Alabama

Hey all. My husband and I purchased a 1980 Grand Banks 36' in Ft Myers and we will be cruising it back to Alabama soon after we complete some repairs. We have 85pds of furry love traveling with us (my husband's service dog) so we will definitely be stopping twice a day to find soil either anchoring out or at marinas. Our draft is 4 ft, so we plan to cross the gulf rather than taking the armpit of FL since much of it looks too shallow. Any suggestions on best places to stop along the way from Ft Myers to Cedar Keys to accommodate the dog and our draft? Appreciate any suggestions!

Welcome to the forum! Might consider taking the ICW to Tampa or Crystal river. If you plan to anchor out, Cayo Costa state park is a real nice stop the first night with ample beaches for the pooch.
