Anclote Key, Three Rooker Bar, and North Bar are islands three miles offshore of Tarpon Springs, FL.  A boat is required to get there; 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 Bar and Anclote Key.  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 only on Open House days.  The Open Houses have been cancelled due to Covid until further notice.
