istaboa, there are very few places off AC that you will be able to get into - our cat draws 5 1/2 and there are basically 3 docks we can get to. I don't know how deep the yacht club is, but they would have had to do a lot of dredging to accommodate you. Part of the problem is not how deep the water at the end of the dock is, but getting into the dock, there are alot of sandbars which make it impossible to get to the dock itself. If you are serious about getting to the island, cannot stress enough that you should call ahead and get a local captain to bring you in thru the cut!!!! We see people every year that think they can do it themselves and end up on the reef. It is well worth the money to keep you, your boat and our precious reef from an accident! Good luck.
