Dredges are currently working the ICW immediately north of Marineland (which, by the way, is finally re-building the Marina docks that were destroyed several years ago). Keep a sharp watch… the channel is narrow enough without a huge dredge in the way.
When they finish with the area north of Marineland they will relocate to the much-needed area of the Matanzas river adjacent to the Matanzas Inlet. They will be dredging from about “Red 80” to about “Red 82.” In the meanwhile, when transiting the area, keep within about 125’ of the western shore between “82” and “80”. Basically, ignore the green markers – they will lead you astray.
