If you decide to go - Vero Beach, Fla.

Posted on 25 March 2009

Vero Beach City Marina is located on Bethel Creek, northeast of the Merrill Barber high-rise bridge, just south of Intracoastal Waterway flashing daybeacon 139 (near Mile 952). Boaters arriving from offshore often reach the ICW through Fort Pierce Inlet, 15 or so miles south. You can call customs from the marina, if necessary.

A short, marked channel leads from the ICW to the marina and through the mooring field. There is no anchoring in Vero Beach; the former anchorage is now the marina’s mooring field. NOAA chart 11472 (Intracoastal Waterway — Palm Shores to West Palm Beach, Loxahatchee River) includes Vero Beach and Fort Pierce Inlet.
