The dredge has moved north from the Marineland area to the Matanzas River adjacent to the Matanzas Inlet and is currently abreast of Red -82 daymark. The Coast Guard has removed the following aids to navigation buoys (red) 80 alpha and bravo and (green) 81 alpha, bravo, and Charlie. As a result there are NO aids to navigation in the worst area of the ICW (the area between 82 and 80) If you are northbound, pass close to the dredge, turn to port and follow the curvature of the WEST shore – staying about 100’ off the shoreline. Once you come abreast of Red 80 you can head back to the center of the marked channel.
