Located just south of South Jupiter Narrows at Intracoastal Waterway Mile Marker 995.9, the Hobe Sound Bascule Bridge is the gateway to Hobe Sound for southbound boaters. This bridge has a 21-foot closed vertical clearance with 90 feet of horizontal clearance in the center span and opens on demand.
Keep an eye on your relative position and your forward speed in thie area; the current can be deceivingly swift.
Depending on schedule, the bridge can be opened by horn signal (one long, one short) or by hailing the bridge tender on VHF Channel 09. (All bridges in the state of Florida must be hailed on VHF Channel 09.)
