  • Off mile 130.5 on the Okeechobee Waterway: 18.3 statute miles from Bimini Basin, 3.8 statute miles to Power Plant Slough.

   A sheltered anchorage in a private development, Yacht Club Colony is reached by leaving the Okeechobee Waterway at marker 22. Turn west and follow the markers to a 90 degree turn in the channel-you are now heading north. This is the entrance to Daughtries Creek.
   The channel is close but carries four feet at MLW. Upon entering the basin, which is almost landlocked, anchoring is available in all directions. Since this is a private development, no landing is possible without permission.
   If you are in danger of being caught in a squall or heavy weather, this could be a good place to ride out the storm.
