Turn south toward Marco Island. Drive approximately 16 miles. Go over a large bridge (The Judge Jolley Bridge). Looking to your right as you drive over the bridge you will see the marina and clubhouse. Turn RIGHT at the first driveway into the marina. Follow the sign to the Dockmaster’s Office.
Geocoordinates 25° 58.71N 81° 46.46W at CAPRI PASS. At geocoordinates 25° 58.71N 81° 46.46W is Marker R “2” which is the start of Capri Pass. Stay 20 yards port of R “2” and continue on to G “3”, R “;4” (hugging G “3”) and G “5, R “6”. At the split channel marker Green Over Red, turn to your starboard (right) going through G “9”, R “8”. As you continue,you will pass G “11”, R “12”, R “14” and G”15. From G “15” you will see the Judge Jolley Bridge ahead of you with Twin Power Towers (77 foot clearance at center) 100 yards aheadof the bridge. You will NOT be going under the bridge. Head for the center span of the bridge leaving the power pole to your starboard(right) and immediately after passing under the power lines turn starboard (right) which will lead you into the Chestnut Waterway Channel. Once you pass the yacht club on your port side, you will come up to our “A” Dockon your port side. The marina docks begin with A and follow with B C D and E in that order. Always hail the dockmaster prior to arriving at the power lines and he will direct you to your slip and assist you in docking.
WARNING TO SAILBOATS:
Aim toward the CENTER of the BRIDGE when going under the power lines. The 77’ clearance is IN THE CENTER OF THE LINES -- the lines dip significantly on either side. It is also shoaly to the right of the power line tower, so don’t take a shortcut – pass under at the center of the two power lines, and then turn STARBOARD, where there is no water depth problem.
By Water coming from GOODLAND AREA:
Go under the 55’ bridge and turn to PORT.
RED-RIGHT-RETURN REVERSES WHEN GOING UNDER THE BRIDGE.
