    • San Pablo/Atlantic Boulevard Bridge

      San Pablo/Atlantic Boulevard Bridge-crosses the ICW at Statute Mile 744.5
      30 19.402 North/081 26.318 West
      65 feet of vertical clearance

      Comments from Cruisers Concerning This Bridge:

      First off, it’s the ebb current that’s the faster current, with speeds up to 4 kts. The flood is about a knot slower. Moreover, this issue exists only in the immediate vicinity of the Atlantic Boulevard bridge. Looking at the chart, the opening between the bits of land to the north of the bridge taper down, but open quickly to the south. We recently passed through the area with a 3 kt flood current and had little trouble under the bridge and only moderate turbulence south of the bridge. The St. Johns River crossing, by comparison, was harder, with strong cross current and turbulence.

      Try to hit this bridge at slack tide. Otherwise you will be facing a swift current (4+ kts) which will test your nerves and
      helmsmanship passing under the bridge.

        We had a great experience with the bridge captain operating this bridge on November 21, 2011. We had monitored VHF channel 9 since clearing Bridge of Lions, and his greetings and conversations with all southbound vessels were courteous, professional, and friendly.
        This is an open on demand bridge and his timing was perfect, every time, resulting in a seamless transit of the bridge.
        We believe this bridge captain is a prime candidate to be presented to the Florida Tourism Board as State Employee of the Year. He certainly is the happiest bridge captain on the ICW.

      65 feet vertical clearance

      Comments from fellow cruisers concerning this bridge:

      I’ve heard that the Ormond Beach Bridge is a bit lower than 65′ at MHW. Is this true? If so, by how much? What is the best tidal reference point to use for this area? Thanks

    • Broadway Bridge

      Broadway Bridge-crosses the ICW at Statute Mile 830.5, south-southeast of unlighted daybeacons #33 and #34
      29 12.996 North/081 00.922 West
      63 to 67 feet vertical clearance (See below)

      Revised FDOT drawings for this particular bridge confirm that one corner of this bridge is at 63 feet MHW. Due to the slope of this bridge this is the lowest corner. The other three points of the fender measure at 65 ft MHW and the bridge has 67 ft at the center.
