    • Local Knowledge Requested for Gullivan Bay, south of Marco Island

      Brian McMahon is requesting local knowledge on passage through Gullivan Bay which lies east of Cape Romano. See Coon Key Pass for a similar request.

      Have same question regarding transiting Gullivan Bay into Goodland. I draw 5′ and based on charts i can make it at high tide. However, looks like there are two potential routes through Gullivan Bay. Anyone have a specific route they think is best?

        I hope you get more recent comments than mine – I’m heading through there in February… at any rate, coming into Goodland I generally start with that little northwesterly bulge in the 6ft line, and head for the Coon Key light; in the past, either side didn’t seem to matter, but I guess I’d favor the west side now. I have NO idea if Hurricane Irma has changed the bottom in any way. We’ve come through there several times in the past with 4 1/2ft draft, in company of boats with slightly deeper draft, and no one has ever hit bottom. But I would time my approach for 1/2 tide and rising. Once you get abeam of Coon Key, there’s plenty of water into Goodland. Good luck! and post the results!
