The Dames Point-Fulton Cutoff East Inlet is the point at which the main shipping channel for the Saint Johns River meets Blount Island, and flows farther on to Broward Point Turn, which is where the Saint Johns River makes a sharp southward bend toward Jacksonville.
Use NOAA Chart 11491.
The Dames Point Bridge has a fixed vertical clearance of 175 feet and was completed in 1989. It crosses the Saint Johns River just West of Blount Island at Dames Point.
Keep a sharp eye out here for commercial and military activity, especially at Blount Island. The journey through the bridge and on to Brills Cut Range is otherwise easy to navigate and well marked.
