Setting — Approximately halfway between the Melbourne and Eau Gallie Causeways on the western side of the ICW, this once bustling marina offers a panorama of both bridges and the barrier island, yet is within walking distance of West Marine and other essentials. The original restaurant building perches above the docks like a tropical yellow flower, with a grand view of boats and the Indian River beyond, including an annual lighted boat parade in December.

Marina Notes — Renovated and expanded before the storms hit, the marina offered a full-service department. Heads, showers and laundry were conveniently located near the dockmaster's office. Coral Bay, the on-site restaurant, is closed until further notice. Coast to Coast boat repair was on site and is an authorized dealer for many engines, both gas and diesel, and offers 24-hour emergency service. The dockmaster welcomes inquiries on yacht and engine repairs by phone or web. Two-hundred-foot easy-access fuel dock and a wave attenuator provided some protection from wakes and wash. Family owned and operated since 1985, it is now under new ownership. (H) Docks were completely wiped out by Frances and Intracoastal is temporarily closed. They anticipate being completely rebuilt by mid-2005 but will likely re-open as dockominiums ("condorina") with landside condos but will continue to offer transient dockage.

Notable — Intracoastal is midway between two interesting town centers with small shops and boutiques. The marina rents jet skis and boats on site (but confirm that this concession will continue) and is close to beaches. For more diversion, the King Center hosts nationally known performers within a 20-minute drive, or escape to Disney, Universal Studios, or Sea World a little more than an hour away.
