Privately maintained channel. 16 feet depth in channel, 10 feet at the dock. From the ICW, leave Sarasota Bay marker #8, head out towards Big Sarasota Pass. At marker #17 (leaving it to starboard) turn to starboard on a heading of approximately 242M for about .37nm. Then round the SYC sign leaving it to starboard and follow the channel, leaving red channel markers to starboard.
Entrance from Big Pass is possible with local knowledge as Sarasota County has placed markers in Big Pass. However these markers may be off station or missing due to the heavy wave action. See Big Pass for current status.
