A bill is being considered in the Florida Legislature this year that would eliminate anchoring within 200 yards of the shoreline of the City of Miami Beach between the McArthur and Julia Tuttle Causeways. As most of the remainder of Biscayne Bay is very shallow, this bill would eliminate overnight anchoring in most of the Bay, which is a much-needed staging ground for slower boats heading to or from the Bahamas or the Keys. If the attempt to put an end to overnight anchoring in this area doesn’t sound egregious on the surface, please note that there are other options available and many regulations already in place to solve Miami Beach’s perceived problems with boats anchored in Biscayne Bay long term.
