  • Eastern Florida Navigation Alerts

    PLEASE CAREFULLY READ OUR DISCLAIMER!

    Please note that “Alerts” listed in this section are arranged in a rough north to south geographic format.
    “Alerts” are messages from your fellow cruisers which pertain to navigational problems or changes along the waters of the Eastern Florida coastline. These “Alerts” are real concerns for Eastern Florida mariners, and might range in subject matter from new shoaling to a missing aid to navigation.
    “Alerts” should be differentiated from our “AICW Problem Stretches” section. “AICW Problem Stretches” are sections of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway that seem to have perennial problems. Even after dredging, shoaling tends to reappear within a relatively short period of time.
    If you have arrived here, seeking information about AICW long-term concerns, be sure to also check out our “EF AICW Problems” section by going to the red, vertical menu on the right side of all Net pages (except Chart View pages). Click on “Eastern Florida” and a drop down menu will appear. Now, click on “EF AICW Problems.” A page will open listing all the problem stretches along the Eastern Florida portion of the Waterway.

  • Update on Groundings South of Fernandina Beach, AICW Statute Mile 719.5


    Reports of shoaling south of Fernandina Beach have been coming in for several years and prompted a USCG Hazard Warning in May of 2014 (http://cruisersnet.net/?p=140702).This shoaling lies c. two miles south of Fernandina Beach harbor just north of the Waterway’s turn into Kingsley Creek. Our thanks to Joe Plunkett for sending this 9/2016 report.
    Now Joe sends us a welcome new report on changes in the Nav Aids around the shoaling.

    READ MORE!
    3/4/2017
    Problem area 300 meters north of old temporary red #2 in Amelia River south of Fernandina Beach has been addressed. Passed by this area on 3/3/17 and noted that the USCG has installed a new marker [Red 2] at the sandbar I grounded on 9/4/16. [See LNM below for [position] USCG requested comments in December replacing temporary red marker#2 with a permanent marker. I used the opportunity to comment and am pleased to see the USCG response. Semper Paratus.
    Joe Plunkett

    And Joe adds in response to Bob’s question:

    I copied the following from the the District 7 Local Notice to Mariners, Week 10-17:
    FLORIDA – AICW – ST SIMONS SOUND – TOLOMATO RIVER – FERNANDINA BEACH- ST. JOHNS RIVER – FERNANDINA BEACH
    The following changes have been approved to the Aids to Navigation System in St Johns River, Fernandina Beach:
    Fernandina Beach TRUB 2 will be permanently discontinued
    Fernandina Beach Daybeacon 2 (LLNR 37988) will be established in position 30-38-54.689N/081-29-03.486W

    And this:

    When I passed through the Amelia River south of Fernandina last week I noticed a new red temporary marker had been placed at or near the location where I grounded last September. I did not take note of the number on the temporary channel marker. Back in September there were three channel markers identifying the channel: a green #1 at the northeast end, a green #3 and a temporary red #2 at the south/southwest end of this section of the Amelia River. There are now four channel markers: The original green #1 at the northeast end of the channel, a new red temporary marker near the location of my grounding, the original green #3 and a new permanent red marker replacing the old temporary marker at the south/southwest end of this section. I did not note the numbers on the new markers. I do not find these new markers on my charts. I use Navionics on my chart plotter and updated the Navionics chip the evening before departing Fernandina heading south. I expect the changes have been or will shortly be published in the Notices to Mariners.
    Joe Plunkett

    9/4/2016
    Encountered less than 3′ at near high tide 300 meters north of Temporary Red #2. Time was Approximately 1330 Hours on 9/4/16. Pulled out port shaft attempting to get off. About ninety minutes later while awaiting tow, observed outboard run aground near same spot. With outboard trimmed up, operator was blowing substantial amounts of sand.
    You must favor the green side when approaching Green #3 from the north or departing Green #3 from the south. Came through this area northbound in late June and did not have any trouble.

  • Sunken, Unmarked Vessel Reported on St. Johns River, North of Palatka, Florida, 3/12/13

    The entire cruising community owes a vote of thanks to Captain David Burnham for reporting the sunken vessel, described below. This derelict could be a real navigational hazard for many cruising craft, both of the sail and power persuasion. ALL cruisers bent on an exploration of the beautiful St. Johns River, south of Jacksonville, should be SURE and make note of this unmarked wreck, and mark it on their charts.
    The Salty Southeast Cruisers’ Net is declaring a Navigational Alert for these waters!

    There is another sunken vessel hazard on the St Johns River. This one is just north of Palatka, southwest of RED MARKER “44″. “Money Sea” one of the Rat Island Yacht Club’s Cal 29s hit it on Sunday 3/11/13, while participating the the March Madness sailboat race. The Cal 29 has a draft of 4.5 feet. Normally, when the keel touches bottom the bow drops, the stern rises and the sailboat comes to a stop. When the Cal struck the UNMARKED submerged vessel, in 12 feet of water, the bow rose up, there was a loud sound of tearing metal as the keel struck, then bow came back down and the Cal kept on sailing. We are lifting the Cal on Tuesday to survey the keel.
    This submerged vessel had been marked in the past few years but after the marker was removed, local attempts by our club members to mark this hazard have been thwarted by someone removing the markers. If you have the AVIONICS app on your droid cell phone, its chart shows a marker near the hazard where no actual marker exists, but we use this app when sailing south of the high power line to the west of the marked barge channel to remind us of the sunken vessel.
    This is not a hazard to most of the bass or crab fishermen in the area but with the MUG RACE coming up the first weekend it May it bears mentioning this unmarked hazard to sailboats and deeper draft vessels who are not following the marked channel and whose chartplotter says they are in 12 feet of water.

  • Dangerous Navigational Mistake on St. Johns River (near intersection with Trout River), 6/8/11

    The Cruisers’ Net has just been contacted by Captain David Kudley (http://www.oldmillcove.com) about a potentially dangerous situation which might arise for captains and vessels cruising downstream (east) on the St. Johns River between Jacksonville and the AICW/Mayport. This is a bit of a complicated matter, and it will probably make more sense if you can follow along while referencing chart 11491.
    First, find where the St. Johns intersects with Trout River, and then look across on the opposite shore, east of St. Johns River marker #63. You will spy a very long, unmarked “channel” which eventually leads east and southeast from Reddie Point to Mill Cove.
    Captain David informed us that some downstream bound captains, either by mistake or by way of trying to take a shortcut, are leaving the main St. Johns channel hard by charted Reddie Point, and following this errant, Mill Cove Channel. Vessels that take this route INEVITABLY RUN AGROUND AS THEY COME ABEAM OF PAULINE ISLAND, IF NOT SOONER, AND, THE LOCAL TOW BOAT SERVICES ARE UNDERSTANDABLY VERY RELUCTANT TO TAKE THEIR VESSELS INTO THESE TREACHEROUS WATERS TO PULL OFF GROUNDED CRAFT!
    There is a good reason that boats run aground in the Reddie Point – Mill Cove “channel.” The purpose of dredging this channel WAS NOT TO MAKE IT NAVIGABLE. Rather it was dredged in order to slow or halt silting in Mill Cove by increasing tidal current. That objective has been accomplished, but that does nothing for navigational purposes.
    The bottom line is that ALL CRUISING VESSELS need to avoid the Reddie Point – Mill Cove “channel” like the proverbial plague, and simply stay in the main St. Johns River channel. To accomplish this objective, be SURE to pass west of marker #63 and northwest of marker #61!!!

    My home is Jacksonville, Fl and my vessel is homeported at Jax Beach Marine, a very a ccomodating, professional, and great place to dock your vessel. I know this area of the St John’s well. If you are cruising in a northward direction Reddie Pt will be off to your right just as the river bends to the right. There is a long dock extending off from thaet point. Pauline Island is just across from that dock. DO NOT I repeat DO NOT make your turn towards that dock and between that island. You will run aground. Stay in the maiin channel.
    Skipper John Hartman

    Could not have said it better myself…….print it…..You might tell them that in emergency they can phone William Maulden, Jacksonville Sheriffs marine division @ 904-318-2023……..Bill lives at the Lions Club next to Reddie Point.
    Thanks,
    and the folks in Mill cove thank you,
    Dave

  • Limited Openings, Main Street Bridge, St. Johns River, Jacksonville, FL, 6/9/2016


    The Main Street Bridge with a vertical clearance of 38ft (charted at 40ft) crossed the St. Johns in downtown Jacksonville. Except for weekends and holidays, these limited openings will affect cruisers wanting to explore the upper St. Johns.

    FLORIDA – ST JOHNS RIVER – MAIN STREET BRIDGE: Bridge Repairs.
    M&J Construction has advised the Coast Guard that they will be working on the Main Street Bridge across the St Johns River, Jacksonville, Florida from June 6, 2016 through April 6, 2017. The bridge operations schedule has been temporarily changed to allow the time needed to complete these repairs; therefore from June 6, 2016 through April 6, 2017, Monday through Friday except Federal holidays the Main Street Bridge will only open at 12 midnight, 4:00 a.m., 6:45 a.m., 12 noon, 4:15 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. On Saturdays, Sundays, Federal holidays, Jaguars game days, the weeks leading up to the Florida/Georgia and ND/Navy football games, and for any other unforeseen event that would seriously impact navigation the bridge will operate on its normal schedule. There will be floating equipment in the vicinity of the bridge; but they do not anticipate restriction navigation during these repairs.

  • Possible Delays in the Opening Procedure at Main Street Bridge, St. Johns River, Jacksonville, FL, 2/14/2016


    Experienced cruiser, David Burnham, offers good advice concerning bridge approach. So many of our mechanical bridges are old and not always maintained properly due to funding cuts. David’s word to wise: go slow and be prepared to stop or come about, not easy when approaching with current. With a closed vertical clearance of 38ft, the Main St. Bridge crosses the St. Johns in downtown Jacksonville.
    REMINDER: Don’t yell at the Bridge Tender! Such mechanical delays are RARELY, IF EVER, the fault of the Tender.

    Passed through the Jacksonville, Florida Main Street Bridge on Wednesday, February 10th, 2016.
    CAUTION: the bridge is experiencing some delay upon opening.
    As the bridge started to lift, I came about and began heading toward the bridge to minimize the time required to stay open but the bridge stopped going up after about 5-6 feet and there was a minute or two delay before the tender was able to get the bridge to continue opening.
    Until this is repaired, be aware not to approach the bridge until a safe clearance height is apparent as the water currents in the area of the Main Street Bridge can be swift at times.

  • Shoaling Reported South of Fernandina Beach, AICW Statute Mile 719.5, 5/13/2014


    This shoaling seems to lie two miles south of Fernandina Beach harbor just north of the Waterway’s turn into Kingsley Creek.
    NOTICE that the USCG has established a “TEMP Buoy 2” to mark these shallows!!!

    FLORIDA – AICW – ST SIMONS SOUND – TOLOMATO RIVER – FERNANDINA BEACH : Shoaling
    There is excessive shoaling visible at low tide in the vicinity of Fernandina Beach LT 3 (LLNR 37990). The Coast Guard has established Fernandina Beach TEMP Buoy 2 in position 30-38-54.689N 081-29-03.486W. Mariners are advised to exercise extreme caution while transiting the area.

  • LNM: Shoaling at AICW St Johns River Crossing, Statute Mile 740, 2/23/2017


    This Waterway shoaling is building on the northeast side between Green Markers #5 and #7, just south of the Waterway crossing of the St. Johns River.

    FLORIDA – AICW –ST SIMONS SOUND – TOLOMATO RIVER – PABLO CREEK: Shoaling
    The Captain of the Port Jacksonville advises all mariners transiting in vicinity of Pablo Creek and Mile Point on the Intracoastal Waterway, that a shoal is forming on the northeast side of Pablo Creek. The shoal extends from east of Pablo Creek temporary Lighted Buoy 5 (LLNR 38360) to southeast of Pablo Creek Temporary Buoy 7 (LLNR 38370) and encroaching to the south and west of Pablo Creek. Minimum depths of 7 ½ feet are recorded in this area. Mariners transiting this portion of Pablo Creek with draft concerns are advised to navigate with caution while passing through this area.

  • Stiff Currents at San Pablo/Atlantic Boulevard Bridge, AICW Statute Mile 744.5, 9/26/2013

    Click for Chartview

    San Pablo/Atlantic Boulevard Bridge crosses the Waterway at Statute Mile 744.5. Having seen the currents here for myself, I can tell you that Captain Ising isn’t kidding nor relaying inaccurate data. The water movement can be fierce!
    In recognition of that fact, we are establishing an SSECN Navigation Alert for these waters!

    We just passed through on 16 Sep 2012 at what was likely max ebb and barely made 1.0 kts SOG. Our boat under full power will do about 6.2 kts, so I estimate the current can get as high as 5+ kts. It was scary with boats ahead and astern wondering if we were going to make it.
    Duane Ising

    In all of Jacksonville that bridge has the strongest current first only to the Main Street bridge on the Saint Johns river In downtown Jacksonville. The travel under this bridge must scrutinized according to the tides as it is a truly powerful funneling of water through a narrow gap. Water flow can exceed 6 knots.
    Dave Bennett

    My boat is at Harbortown Marina right there at Atlantic Blvd and the ICW, and yea, I can’t go anywhere when she’s running strong. The current is just as dangerous two miles north where the ICW crosses the St.John’s River, stay well away from the jetty and watch your sideways set action.
    Keith Blankenship s/v Renasci

    We came through this bridge about the 13th of Nov. 2012 and it was horrible !! Outgoing tide and we had all we could do get through – my guess is that we were doing no more than 1 – 1.5 knts; plus the turbulence approaching and under the bridge was like a washing machine. This is an extremely dangerous situation and most expecially when you some idiot approching from the opposite direction with the current, can obviously see that you are having a major control problem and continues to enter the bridge.

  • Watch Out For Shoal East and Southeast of AICW Marker #49 (Statute Mile 772), 5/16/2014


    On the morning of 5/16/14, the Salty Southeast Cruisers’ Net received a telephone call from Francis aboard “Easy Rider.” She reported that they were northbound on the AICW, and had just observed a larger powercraft hard aground, AT HIGH TIDE, on the charted shoal east and southeast of marker #49. She went on to say that this was the very same spot where they had a grounding problem with their own vessel a year ago.
    While we cannot yet confirm this hypothesis, it seems likely that the charted shoal east and southeast of #49 has built out farther towards the AICW channel. Prudent skippers will pass #49 well to its western and southwestern side.
    If anyone has any additional information about this hazard, PLEASE use the “Comment” function below and share that information with our fellow cruisers! Our thanks to Skipper Michelle for confirming the advice to favor the west side of the channel.

    SeaTow mentioned this area as a problem to our group recently. I went up to check it out yesterday and it is very shallow E and NE of green marker 49. Your suggestion is spot on to stay on the west side of the channel.
    Michelle

    We passed 49 about 150 to the West in about 30 ft of water at just about the beginning of a rising tide without a problem on June 3 at 1140am

  • Good News: Red Marker Reported back On Station, Matanzas Inlet/AICW Intersection, Problem Stretch, Statute Mile 793, 11/9/2016


    11/9/2106 See Dan and Jaye Lunsford comments below.

    Robert Sherer (see comments below) traveling south reports several groundings due to an off-station Red Marker #80B south of Marker #80A. Another cruiser reported earlier that a southbound sport fisherman ahead slammed hard into a shoal by following the off-station 80B. He found deeper water by favoring the Green markers through this Problem Stretch section.

  • Incorrect Charted Height at Broadway Bridge, Daytona Beach, Statute Mile 830.5, 5/13/11

    Cruisers’ Net Bridge Directory has this bridge listed as 62ft and care needs to be taken at high tide as Almost Heaven relates below. The Broadway Bridge (E International Speedway Blvd) crosses the ICW at Statute Mile 830.5, south-southeast of unlighted daybeacons #33 and #34.

    This Bridge is 62′! on a high tide we would not clear this bridge.(63.5 + Antennas) The Markers on the bridge clearly showed 63′ with the tide down 1 foot. Please consider the tide range when passing under the Broadway Bridge. The chart is INCORRECT as it shows 65′.
    Almost Heaven

    This bridge needs a proper clearance board. ie: measurement. I crept under this spring with the board reading 63. My antenna usually hits at a 64 reading. Antenna did not hit.
    Skipper Paul Eckenroth

    Our mast height is also 63.5′ + antennas, we passed under this bridge @ 8pm Sunday May 13th, 2012. The Bridge clearance guage showed 62′ but as we had previously cleared this bridge in the fall we gave it a very slow go weaving between the nav light. As far as we could tell not even our antenna touched (unlinke many other bridges on the AICW) which means there is at least 66+’ in the middle of the span.

  • Shoaling in St. Lucie River, Okeechobee Waterway, Statute Mile 1, Stuart, FL, 5/18/2014

    St. Lucie Shoaling – Click for Chartview

    This shoaling is in a section known as Hell Gate just west of Sewall Point at the mouth of the St. Lucie River and near the easternmost section of the Okeechobee Waterway. The coordinates given in the Notice put the temporary buoy 17A in the middle of Sewall Point, but we have to assume it is near the charted green marker #17. Since the shoaling (charted) is encroaching from the west, favoring the green side of the channel is your best bet.
