Setting — Small Diamond 99 Marina is tucked into a little notch on the western side of the Indian River and protected by a concrete and wood breakwater. Oak and palm trees sway in the breezes over the picnic area and gas grills; Route 1 hums a stone's throw away.

Marina Notes — This has been Diamond 99, namesake of the closest ICW marker, since 1965. With an ASA sailing school on site, it is a center for sailboats. The ships' store in the dockmaster’s office carries a small supply of rigging and sail hardware, some at reduced prices. Sail rentals are also available. The current family owner-operators have lived on site since 1978. They welcome liveaboards, enjoy visiting with transients and consider the members of the marina community their closest neighbors and best friends. Owners and liveaboards frequently drive transients to shopping areas or medical centers. (H) Docks, roof, water and electric were all damaged in the 2004 hurricanes but they were back in business at publication. The above-ground pool and pump-out system had not, as yet, been restored

Notable — The area surrounding the marina has developed considerably in the last few years, so what once seemed far from town is now within hailing distance of several good restaurants and a few miles from an upscale shopping center. The marina is also less than three miles from the King Center for the Performing Arts, which hosts frequent performances of live theater, music and dance by national and international artists. Slightly further, the Brevard Zoo offers guided kayaking tours through wetlands featuring sandhill cranes, deer, bobcats and more.
