Anclote Keys (composed of Anclote Key plus smaller islands on the north end), Three Rooker Islands (currently two islands), and North Bar are islands three miles offshore of Tarpon Springs, FL.  A boat is required to get to these islands; no causeways exist.  If you canoe or kayak, please be mindful of the tides, winds, and currents.  The closest launches are in Holiday, Anclote River Park, and Howard Park in Tarpon Springs.  There are no public docks on the islands.  Boaters must anchor offshore or beach their boats.  For the protection of island wildlife, dogs are not permitted on Three Rooker Islands and Anclote Keys.  The islands are completely natural and designated as wildlife sanctuaries.  Dogs are allowed on North Bar on six-foot leashes.

Anclote Lighthouse is open for climbing on scheduled Open House days run by the Friends of Anclote Key State Park & Lighthouse.  See the Open House page on this website for more information.
