Three days, 134 miles, 6 bascule (opening) road bridges, 5 bascule railroad bridges and 5 locks…… we DID IT! Day 1: Stuart to Indiantown; Day 2: Indiantown to Moore Haven; Day 3: Moore Haven to Ft. Myers. These photos are in chronological order, showing the images from our path as we motored through man-made canals, several rivers and two lakes.
The Okeechobee Waterway consists of the St. Lucie River, the St. Lucie Canal, Lake Okeechobee, the Caloosahatchee Canal, Lake Hicpochee, more of the Caloosahatchee Canal and then the Caloosahatchee River, ending just beyond Ft. Myers at the Sanibel Causeway Bridge.
Would we run this route again? We might run it again. We do prefer being at sea and SAILING over motoring, but this was a really fun trip and we may use this waterway to return.
