Located just north of Fort Pierce, Taylor Creek is situated at Intracoastal Mile 965, and is conveniently located close to the Fort Pierce Inlet and Intracoastal Waterway-proper. Though mainly populated with repair yards (most of the haul-out facilities in Fort Pierce are located here), there are transient facilities available in Taylor Creek and some provisioning opportunities are close at hand ashore if you need to restock the galley.
Use NOAA Chart 11472.
From the ICW at Mile 965, pick up red daybeacon 184 off the main ICW channel. Once you have intercepted red daybeacon 184, pick up green daybeacon 1 at the beginning of the channel into Taylor Creek. There are usually several moored boats to starboard off the channel on approach; be careful if approaching at night.) Past green daybeacon 1 to the west are red daybeacon 2, green daybeacon 3, and red daybeacon 4, all of which are visible in the image above. The approach channel and the creek have six-foot dredged depths.
There are three facilities inside Taylor Creek and they have three of the four lifts that operate in the city of Fort Pierce for haul-outs and related repair services. The Harbortown Marina and Boatyard is the only facility here that accepts transient guests, however.
