The St. John's River is one of the safest and easiest gateways from the Atlantic Ocean. Between Mayport and Sanford, the river is an enjoyable cruise. Overhead clearance is set at 45 feet by three fixed bridges. Snags are seldom a problem in main channel, but side streams and sloughs should be approached carefully. Be particular observant from November through March, when manatees are in residence. Current south of Palatka can be influenced by the water level in the upper (southern) part of the river, as is flows south to north.
Background The St. Johns River, 310 miles in length, is the longest river in Florida. Among its many distinct characteristics, the St. Johns is one of few major rivers in the nation that flow north. The St. Johns River and its tributaries drain about one-sixth of the state of Florida, or about 8,700 square miles. The river flows from its headwaters in marshes southwest of Cape Canaveral, evolving into a series of lakes, Map Of River finally maturing into a river averaging two miles in width for its final one hundred miles into Jacksonville, and the Atlantic Ocean.
Action Plan The St. Johns River is divided into three basins: upper, middle, and lower. Issues facing the different regions are broad and diverse. The Upper Basin Restoration Project is a joint effort between the St. Johns River Water Management District and the Army Corps of Engineers to restore thousands of acres of wetlands that were once diked and drained. The effort will create more natural flood storage and wetlands habitat. Residents in the Upper Basin are also working to improve recreational access and address sedimentation issues in the Sebastian River. There are a number of projects in the Middle Basin at Lake Jesup and Little Wekiva as well as an active ecosystem management effort in Lake George. There is also significant interest in waterfront redevelopment in Palatka, Welaka, Sanford, and Crescent City. In addition, Volusia County has developed a blueway and greenway plan that links environmental, historic, and cultural sites that will be used as a model for other areas along the river.
