Actually it does include electric, water, pump out, wifi, bikes and washers and dryers. A good deal.

It is Key West. Atlantis in Nassau is more. North Cove in NYC is more than either of them.

We paid 50 cents a foot in Butedale and $20.00 for the breakwater floats in Shearwater during our two nights in towns this last trip, if you can call Butedale a town

When we were in the PNW and even more as we reached Alaska, it was hilarious to us to hear the occasional complaint about dock rates. We were so very shocked at how low the rates were. Just all relative. Didn't Einstein define some law of that nature?

Thanks Lou,
I'm not sure if my present boat quite up for a circumnavigation, but if I get up there I'd love to share a La Fin du Monde with you.

It is also the last time we will go to Key West. The "marina" pool is shared by a restaurant. When we arrived there were two cruise ships in port. Needless to say, my two boys saw more than we ever bargained for when we walked past the pool. Never again.

Butedale is an isolated derelict salmon cannery rapidly being reabsorbed into BC's marine and temperate rainforest ecosystems that has some logs cabled together and plywood screwed on top for tieing up to. The caretaker asked for 50 cents a foot, so we paid a little more and gave him some canned pop as well. Interesting place to wander around and there's a nice trail to the old powerhouse and lake.

Shearwater has a proper marina for a higher price, but we felt more at home with the vagabond riff-raff sailboats and commercial fishing boats on the breakwater floats

What was going on in the pool?

Here's one I visited earlier this year. It even has a cave you can pull your boat into.

Get out of there if a southeasterly starts blowing.

Pretty exotic! See any large sharks in that area?

I assume your boys are young. I would agree that Key West is not the best place for younger kids. I think some of the spots between Miami and Key West are more family friendly. We love Key West, but we don't have kids with us.

Sounds like Key West alright. Gotta keep the kids in the museums, the southermost point, or in restraurants. Daytime only. And, you missed the festivals.

We didn't see any there, but I'm sure there is. There are shark viewing cages at nearby South Neptune Island.

The coordinates I listed were for a spot at Wedge Island. It is a magical anchorage in the right conditions. 150 foot cliffs wrap 270 degrees around the small bay. It would only be big enough for only one or two boats. There is a cave at the water line big enough to take a decent sized boat in, although I decided my mast was a bit too close to the rock ceiling.

The worst part was the pool is only open from 11am-5pm so it WAS daytime!

One thing that usually keeps people from anchoring too close is wearing a Speedo on the bow or flybridge.

Or, like I already saw, watch a neighbor go on his swim platform to pee while you are having a drink

In Gwaii Haanas we shared anchorages on only 4 nights in 3 weeks this past June-July.

Easy to find here.
99.9% of people have to be at work Monday.
All boats left here Sunday afternoon.

Yep, that's what we find nowadays.

Though frankly, even now on Saturday evenings when all the day boats have gone home we are often the only boat in the anchorage.

This is my current desktop image - Fort George River on a summer Saturday evening.
