Setting — On the west side of the ICW, just under the low bridge where U.S. 1 crosses Turkey Creek, the wood docks of Pelican Harbor nestle alongside mangroves and Brazilian peppers. This small but well-landscaped marina, with its gray sales building and ships' store, accommodates only smaller power boats -- those with short air drafts and modest keel drafts.

Marina Notes — The bridge across Turkey Creek allows a maximum clearance of only 15 ft., and even that depends on freshwater flow down the Creek, controlled at the Tillman Spillway upstream. The entrance and the deepest slips at Pelican Harbor are four feet at MLW. The marina is well-maintained with a friendly staff. It has heads but no showers or laundry. They are dealers for Glastron, Larson, Sea Pro, Sea Bass, Yamaha, and Johnson. You can inquire about services available on call in the small ships' store in the sales office. Turkey Creek is well-protected, and this could be a fine place to leave a low-profile boat.

Notable — Watercraft rentals on site allow more quiet exploration of either Turkey Creek in canoes and kayaks, or the Indian River in fishing boats or pontoon boats. Andretti Thrill Park, about three miles away, will give fun-seekers a buzz, with several go-kart rides, from children's level to a European racing track. Also available in the park are batting cages, an 18-hole mini golf course, Jet-Ski style boats, laser tag and kiddie rides.
