  • Off mile 128.3 on the Okeechobee Waterway: 3.8 statute miles from Yacht Club Colony, 26.6 statute miles to intracoastal Waterway mile "0" at green marker 101.

   This is one of the many oxbows formed by the Caloosahatchee River before it was straightened to create the Okeechobee Waterway.
   Leave the Waterway heading to the northeast when you are west of marker 13 and anchor in more than 6 feet of water.
   You may want a photograph of the beautiful manatee sculpture in the river east of the 175 bridge. Go up and have a look... it's lovely!
   Sailing vessels: note 55 foot clearance bridge.
