Boating

Northeast Florida is a great place for boating and fishing.  At the northern end of Jacksonville's Beaches is the inlet for the St. Johns River.  The inlet hosts Mayport Naval Station and is large enough to accommodate Aircraft Carriers and Ocean Liners.  There are large jetties that provide protection through breakwater sections and offer a wonderful fish habitat.

Just inside the jetties is Mayport fishing village with fresh seafood coming in every day.  This is the home of famous Mayport Shrimp.

Beyond Mayport, boaters can continue on the St. Johns River to Downtown Jacksonville and further South or head North or South along the Intracoastal Waterway.  Heading North on the Intracoastal offers great boating in natural surroundings and sandbar boat gatherings are a regular occurrence.

Heading South along the Intracoastal brings you through Atlantic, Neptune & Jacksonville Beaches and into Ponte Vedra Beach.  There are Marinas and restaurants along the way.  Beyond Ponte Vedra Beach you travel through untouched Guana Preserve on your way to Vilano & St. Augustine.  There are great restaurants just North & South of the St. Augustine inlet available by boat.

St. Augustine Inlet is the next inlet South of the St. Johns River inlet at Mayport.  The harbor here is home to historic St. Augustine.  You can dock at public docks and stroll the wonderful Downtown area.

There are a wide range of fishing opportunities in Northeast Florida from offshore game fish to in-shore red fish, flounder, trout and drum and freshwater bass fishing in the St. Johns River.
