Introduction:

Eight national flags have flown over this magnificently beached and forested spit of land, the most southern of the sea islands that trail down the Carolina and Georgia coasts. Fernandina Beach is the birthplace of the modern shrimp industry and the shrimp boats depart the city docks on most days. Fernandina Beach is the state of Florida’s northernmost city.

Moving south from the state of Georgia, the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) runs through Cumberland Sound, empties into the St. Marys River Entrance, and then picks up the route across the Florida/Georgia state line to the Amelia River, which runs past the city of Fernandina Beach near ICW Mile 716.

The image above is a view from the south looking north over the mouth of the Amelia River with the St. Marys River Entrance in the background. Cumberland Island can be seen top left. Fernandina Beach is to the right (east), and Little Tiger Island is to the left (west). Fernandina Beach’s most visible landmark is the paper mill, which spews steam at all hours of the day and can be seen for many miles. Farther off to the right (south) is the Fernandina Beach waterfront, where you can find three marinas. Tiger Point and Florida Petroleum Corp. both accept transient guests at their slips, and Florida Petroleum Corp. has fuel at cut-rate pricing. Fernandina Harbor does not advertise the availability of transient slips, but you may be able to radio ahead to arrange a slip if the others are full - don’t count on it, though.


Navigating the Water:

Use NOAA Chart 11503.

The Approach to the mouth of the Amelia River and to the city of Fernandina Beach begins in the St. Marys River Entrance just north of the old fort at Quarantine Reach. Quick flashing green buoy “1” and flashing red buoy “2” mark the entrance to the Amelia River, but if you are approaching from the north, be sure to clear the white flashing light (forward range light) that marks a shoal working north from Tiger Island. The shoal is not of any real danger (nine- to 17-foot depths), but the area should be avoided in favor of the ICW-proper route.

Past quick flashing green buoy “1” and flashing red buoy “2,” follow flashing green buoy “3,” flashing red buoy “4,” flashing green buoy “5,” flashing red buoy “6,” flashing green “7,” and then quick flashing red buoy “8” down into the Fernandina Beach waterfront area. There is anchorage on the west side of the channel directly across from Fernandina’s small harbor.
