INTRODUCTION

For Florida, with its 14 sea ports and six international airports,
the movement of goods to and from the State represents a vital part
in its economic growth. The increasing importance of this vigorous
phase of the State's economy is reflected in the fact that Florida's total
international trade increased 196 per cent (from $247.9 million to
$734.1 million) between 1946 and 1960!
Florida's geographic location offers easy access to fast-growing
domestic and foreign markets, particularly those in Latin America,
whose population is expected to reach the 270 million mark in 1965.
Western Europe and the Far East, also traditional Florida markets,
are also served by steamship companies and air lines operating from
Florida's ports and international airports. Florida is rapidly becoming
the main departure point for Caribbean and world cruise ships, which
use the attractive facilities now available at many Sunshine State ports.
And this "Gateway to the Caribbean" has just begun to swing open.
Modern marine repair yards, mechanical handling, storage, rail-
road trackage and many other facilities are available, too, and ex-
pansions and improvements of these facilities are continuously being
planned and completed.
Florida offers international commerce the finest facilities, includ-
ing dockside and airport transportation, freight forwarders, custom
house brokers, international banking facilities and a statewide atmos-
phere of efficiency and hospitality.
The rapid growth and development of Florida is setting the pace
for modern trade.

APALACHICOLA, FLORIDA

Under the Jurisdiction of the City of Apalachicola.


General Description of the Port
The Port of Apalachicola is located at the mouth of
the Apalachicola River on Apalachicola Bay and is the
Gulf of Mexico Terminus of the Apalachicola-Chattahoo-
chee-Flint River Valley.
The depth of the harbor entrance to the Port of
Apalachicola is 12' and measures 150' in width. At present
there are two seaward entrances to the harbor through
East Pass and West Pass. The depth of these channels
from entrance to the harbor proper is 12' and the width
is 125'. An additional entrance through St. George Island,
Bob Sikes' Channel, opposite the Port and City of Apalachi-
cola is 10' by 200'.

Docks & Basins
There are two public docks at Apalachicola, each 90'
long. Apalachicola Boat Basin is 200' wide by 700' long.
There are 1800 lineal feet of docking space. It is located
on the southeast tip of the City and connects with the
Intracoastal Waterway. Depth of Basin is 10' at entrance
and 6' in Basin proper.
The Scipio Creek Boat Basin, also in Apalachicola,
is now completed. It is a small craft harbor 220' by 900'
at a maintained depth of 9'+. Docking facilities are
under construction and will be completed by 1962.

Tides

BOCA GRANDE, FLORIDA


Important activities have been going on at Boca Grande
ever since the days when the pirate Gasparilla made the
harbor his hideout in the early 1800's.

After Gasparilla came fishing fleets to make the harbor
headquarters for smoking and salting down great cargoes
of mullet.

Then in 1885 phosphate was discovered nearby in the
inland section of mid-Florida and great barge-loads of this
mineral, valued mainly as fertilizer, were floated down
Peace River for transloading aboard sailing ships in Boca
Grande Harbor.

Phosphate has been pouring through Boca Grande
in increasing volume ever since, until now, although many
people may not know about it, this center is one of the
important export points in Florida.

The railroads brought the millionaries, but is was the
phosphate which brought the railroad. Booming produc-
tion made barges impractical, so a rail line, the Charlotte
Harbor & Northern, was built from the mine fields to


South Boca Grande, spanning the pass between island and
mainland with a long wooden trestle still in use.
The Seaboard Air Line Railway company acquired the
railroad to Boca Grande and its facilities on the island are
estimated at $3,500,000. This includes a great elevator
building over the water to raise the phosphate from the
railway cars and funnel it into the holds of ships.
An average of three big freight steamships a week
come into Boca Grande empty and sail out with great
cargoes of phosphate, bound for ports all over the world.
The railroad enters Gasparilla Island at its northern
tip, a commercial fishing village named, Gasparilla, and
runs the length of the 7-mile long, 1-mile wide island,
through Boca Grande proper, and on to South Boca
Grande at the southern tip where the ships are loaded.
Long trains of gondola cars loaded with phosphate rattle
into Boca Grande at all hours of the day and night. Fa-
cilities to Boca Grande have improved with the comple-
tion of a toll bridge from Placida to Gasparilla Island, on
which Boca Grande is located. There is also a light plane
landing strip at Boca Grande.


CANAVERAL, FLORIDA
Under the Jurisdiction of the Canaveral Port Authority
A. A. Dunn, Chairman
George J. King, Port Manager


General Description of the Port
Port Canaveral is located on the east coast of Florida,
midway between Miami and Jacksonville. The harbor has
an entrance channel 38' deep and 400' wide which extends
to a turning basin which is 35' deep, 2000' wide and 2000'
long. Two rock jetties, each 1,100' long are located at the
channel entrance. A barge canal, 8' deep and some 7
miles long, extends from the turning basin to the Intra-
coastal Waterway. However, this canal will not be useable
until U.S. engineers build lock in dyke that encloses port.
Port Canaveral has been recently made a U.S. Customs
Port of Entry.

Wharves
Port Canaveral now has four marginal wharves, one is
on the north side and 1200 ft. long, for deep draft vessels,
but the wharf is not public; it is for the use of the mili-
tary only. On the south side there is one marginal wharf
400 ft. long for deep draft vessels; one 600 ft. long for
the use of barges and shallow draft vessels and one 1000
ft. long for the use of the fishing fleet and small boats.
The mean tidal range at the Port Canaveral harbor
entrance is 31/'.


Access by Inland and/or Intracoastal Waterways
A barge canal, 8' deep and some 7 miles long, extends
from the turning basin to the Jacksonville-Miami Intra-
coastal Waterway, however, this cannot be used until U.S.
engineers build lock in dyke that encloses port.

Port Charges
Towing: Port Canaveral now has two tugs available,
owned by the Port Canaveral Towing Co. and charges can
be obtained by contacting that company.
Port Canaveral Tariff #1 itemizes charges and will be
furnished upon request.

Pilotage: According to draft of vessels:
0' 10' $4.00 per ft. draft


10' 14'
14' 20'
Over 20'


5.00 per ft. draft

able in the area, but the port does own two 8000 lb. fork-
lifts that may be leased.

Industrial Zone Sites
Considerable waterfront property available for industry.
About 850 acres in the harbor area.

Improvements
A multi-million dollar improvement program for Port
Canaveral is nearing completion. It includes wharves,
warehouses, piers, etc. on the north side of the Harbor.
These facilities to be used only by the military and are
not public. The Corps of Engineers, in charge of this
project, has begun the last phase of this program by deep-
ening the harbor to a depth of 38 ft. to accommodate the
large navy vessels and range supply ships that will work
out of the harbor in conjunction with the Guided Missile
Center operations.
A facility for bulk cargo unloading (tankers, bulk ce-
ment, etc.) is being built on the south side. This will be
public.


FERNANDINA BEACH, FLORIDA


General Description of the Port
Fernandina Beach is a U.S. Customs Port of Entry.
The entrance to Fernandina Harbor, Florida, is on the
Atlantic Coast 22/2 miles north of the entrance to Jack-
sonville Harbor, and 95 miles south of the entrance to
Savannah Harbor, Georgia. The harbor consists of the
lower 2 miles of the Amelia River, which flows southward
and empties into Cumberland Sound at the northern end
of Amelia Island about 3 miles from the outer end of the
jetties at the ocean entrance. The harbor is separated
from the ocean by Amelia Island, which at this point is
about 2 miles wide. The City of Fernandina is located on
the eastern bank of Amelia River about 2 miles above its
mouth and 5 miles from the outer end of the jetties.
There is a 28' channel at mean low water from deep
water in the Atlantic Ocean to deep water at the junction
of Lanceford Creek with Amelia River, with widths of
400' below Calhoun Street in the City of Fernandina and
300' above. The channel has been widened at the first
bend below Lanceford Creek to 1,000'to form a turning
basin.

Piers, Wharves & Docks
There are 16 piers or wharves at Fernandina which
are or could be used for handling water-borne commerce.
There are no facilities for handling general cargo, the piers
and wharves in general, being used for a particular com-
modity or kind of traffic.
The 16 facilities covered in this report have a total
berthing area of 4,973' with depths ranging from 30' to 2'


at mean low water. Very few of the piers and wharves have
sufficient depth alongside to permit berthing of deep-draft
vessels.

Tides and Tidal Currents
The mean tidal range on the entrance bar is 5.8' and
in the inner harbor 6', with minor fluctuations due to wind
and lunar effects.
The tidal currents at the entrance to Cumberland
Sound have great velocity and are especially dangerous on
the flood. Under normal conditions the flood tide has a
maximum velocity of 34 miles per hour and the ebb tide
a maximum velocity of 4 miles per hour. Under the worst
conditions of a flood on a spring tide and a northeast gale,
the velocity near the end of the north jetty is estimated to
be as much as 5 knots. Between the bell buoy and the end
of the north jetty the flood current sets southward, and
with northeasterly winds sets strongly in a south-southwest
direction. Vessels entering the port on the flood tide with
northeasterly winds will encounter an eddy current which
sets out close along the inside of the north jetty.

Anchorages
There is good anchorage covering an area of about
160 acres, with a general depth of 25', off the north-
western point of Amelia Island in Cumberland Sound.
There is good anchorage in the Amelia River from its
mouth to the City of Fernandina.
Pilotage
Pilots for Fernandina Beach, Florida and St. Marys',








Industrial Division


Georgia are available and will come out from their head-
quarters at Fernandina Beach when called. Usual pro-
cedure is to request their services directly to the Pilot Sta-
tion or through the vessels agent.
Towage
Towboats can be obtained from Jacksonville, Florida.
Harbor Master
For vessels over 500 tons, the Harbor Master's fee is
$20.00.
Transit Sheds
Five of the wharves at Fernandina Beach are equipped
with transit sheds, which provide a total of approximately
66,000 sq. ft. of floor area.
Fuel Storage
Thirteen tanks with a storage capacity of approximately
4,800 barrels; two 8,000-gallon horizontal storage tanks,
and a 10,000-gallon tank operated by private companies
for their own use.
Supplies
Electric current, water, gasoline and oil bunkering are
available. Provisions and some ship chandlery can be ob-
tained.
Salvage and Wrecking Equipment
No special facilities available. Must be obtained from
Jacksonville, Florida.
Marine Repairs
Facilities not available for large vessels. Jacksonville,
Florida is the nearest place for repairs and haul-out serv-
ices. Three marine railways are capable of hauling out ves-
sels of 60' length and 6' draft. Hull and engine repairs can
be made.
Mechanical Handling Equipment
One wharf is equipped with mechanical devices for
loading bulk cargo at the rate of 400 tons per hour. Most


equipment consists of elevators and conveyor systems for
handling logs, fish, and phosphate rock.
Railroad Facilities
All rail service at the port is furnished by the Seaboard
Air Line Railway, whose tracks parallel the water front.
The Rayonier barge wharf has one surface track at the
upper end and approach. All of the other water front
facilities, except those north of Clarks Creek, have tracks
immediately in the rear, but there are none on the fa-
cilities.

FORT PIERCE, FLORIDA
Under the Jurisdiction of the Fort Pierce Port Authority
E. L. Taylor, Chairman


General Description of the Port
(Ft. Pierce, Florida)
The Port of Fort Pierce is a deep water port, located
on the east coast of Florida about 60 miles north of the
Port of Palm Beach and 210 miles south of the Port of
Jacksonville. All existing port facilities, including the
entrance channel, turning basin, docks and terminals, are
within the incorporated limits of the City of Fort Pierce,
the county seat of St. Lucie County. The surrounding land


is low-lying. The elevation in the immediate vicinity of
the port rarely exceeds ten feet above mean sea level.
The entrance channel has been cut through an island
separating the Atlantic Ocean from Indian River. The
channel continues across Indian River to a turning basin
and terminal facilities, located on the western shore of
the river. The total length of the channel is 3/2 miles.
The existing Federal project for Fort Pierce Harbor
provides for a channel 350' wide at the 27' contour in the








Florida Development Commission


ocean tapering to 200' west of the inlet, thence 200' wide
to a turning basin that flares to a width of 900'. The depth
of the channel is 27' in the outer portion and 25' in the
inner portion. The depth of the turning basin is 25'.
Rubblestone jetties and revetments 900' apart on the
north and south sides of the inlet protect the channel ap-
proaches from the ocean. The channel, turning basin, and
jetties are maintained by the Federal Government.

Piers & Wharves
The existing port facilities in Fort Pierce are located
on the west shore of Indian River. They consist of the
Municipal Pier and Slip and the Indian River Refrigera-
tion Terminal Company pier on the north side of that
slip. A marginal wharf owned by Gulf Oil Company is
located about 600' north of the Refrigeration Terminal.
This wharf is used by petroleum barges.
The Municipal Pier, lying along the south side of the
slip, is 330' long. It is flanked on the south by Seaway
Drive which connects the City with Causeway Island. The
pier bulkhead on the turning basin is 200' long. The depth
of water alongside the pier in the slip varies from about
20' at the outshore end to about 13' inshore. A single story
warehouse, of timber construction about 300' long and
75' wide, on the pier is used for storage and occasionally
for shrimp packing. Pipelines from the City Power Station
and Sinclair Refining Company terminating on the pier
are used to receive petroleum from barges.
The Indian River Refrigeration Terminal Company
is a finger type pier 177' wide. It is 330' long on the south
side and 422' long on the north side. The depth of water
alongside the pier is about 24'. A precooling plant for the
citrus trade occupies the greater part of the pier. The
widths of the aprons are 30' on the north side, 45' on the
south side, and 50' on the outshore end of the pier. Rail-
road tracks on the north and south aprons connect with
the Florida East Coast Railway. Electric conveyor systems
on the pier handle boxed citrus fruit between the pre-
cooling plant and truck, railcar or ship. The pier is not
equipped to handle other types of cargo.
Tides & Tidal Currents
The tidal ranges at the channel inlet and at the Muni-
cipal Pier in the port are given by the U.S. Coast and
Geodetic Survey as follows: Tidal Ranges (feet)
Location Mean Spring
Inlet 2.6 3.0
Municipal Pier 0.7 0.8
The maximum velocity of the tidal current through
the inlet at spring tides is 3.3 knots with an average of
2.8 knots. According to the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Sur-
vey, occasional velocities of up to 5 knots have been re-
ported.
Access by Inland and/or Intracoastal Waterway
The Intracoastal Waterway from Jacksonville to Miami


passes through Indian River at Fort Pierce. From Fort
Pierce, to Miami, the channel is 8' deep and 100' wide, and
from Fort Pierce to Jacksonville the depth is 12' and the
width is 125'. At Stuart, about 19 miles south of Fort
Pierce, the Intracoastal Waterway connects with the Okee-
chobee Waterway which crosses Florida to the West Coast.
The present minimum depth of this channel is 6'.

Cold Storage
Operated by Indian River Refrigeration Company,
has capacity for 75,000 standard fruit boxes of 1 3/5
bushels each or approximately 148 railroad cars.

Supplies
Electric power and water are supplied to the Port area
by the City of Fort Pierce.

Railroad Facilities
Railroad connection between Fort Pierce and other
ports on the east coast is provided by the Florida East
Coast Railway. A spur line from Fort Pierce to Lake
Okeechobee connects with the Atlantic Coast Line and
Seaboard Air Line serving the west coast of Florida.

Improvements
A capital stock company, "Ft. Pierce Port & Terminal
Co.", acquired a considerable portion of Port property in
August, 1956, for extensive development.
Plans for the bulkheading of a 55 acre port tract are
being prepared for submission to the Army for the first
of 6 piers, and a petition is in to the Army Engineers for
deepening of the channel to a minimum depth of 34' with
a possibility of a 40' channel being requested. Preliminary
plans for the first of the new piers to be built at the port
have been drawn up. This pier, it was reported, will be
650' long and 300' wide, and will contain a large transit
cargo shed, with a spur line railroad running out on it.
While preliminary plans for the pier call for only 34'
water depth, pier pilings are to be heavy enough for a
40' depth channel. The new pier will be built just to the
north of the existing pier of the old company, and a 300'
slip will separate the two piers.
On the mainland at the foot of the new pier, a large
warehouse, with a minimum of 50,000 sq. ft. floor space
is to be constructed fronting on an existing railroad spur.
It is planned eventually to construct a total of 6 such piers
on the port property, separated by 300' wide slips capable
of handling the largest freighter on the Atlantic. More than
3-million dollars will be spent for port development over
the next 2 or 3 years.

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA

Under the Jurisdiction of the City Commissioners of Jacksonville, Florida


General Description of the Port
Jacksonville Harbor is in the northeastern part of
Florida on the St. Johns River, approximately 28 miles
above its mouth. It is 126 statute miles by water south of
Savannah, Georgia. The Harbor extends about 1 mile
above and 7 miles below the Florida East Coast Railway
bridge and includes the total width of the river. The Port
is about 18 miles from the Atlantic Ocean and has about
9 miles of developed frontage.
The entrance channel from the ocean between two
converging stone jetties, which extend out across the
ocean bar, and, at the sea ends, are parallel for 4,022',
have been dredged to a depth of 42' as far as the Naval
Air Auxiliary Station, Mayport. The balance of the chan-
nel has been dredged to a depth of 34'. Within the harbor
area there are 2 channels, terminal channel along the
terminals on the west bank of the river between Long
Branch Cut and Commodore Point, and Arlington Cut,
generally parallel to terminal channel. The St. Johns
River has navigable depths varying from 18' to 5' to Lake
Harney, 169 miles above Jacksonville. The Atlantic Inter-
coastal waterway from Norfolk to Miami crosses the St.
Johns River about 5 miles above its mouth. Adequate
anchorages are available within the harbor limits for both
deep draft and shallow draft vessels.
The world's largest carriers (Forrestal class) are cur-
rently utilizing the carrier basin at Mayport, Florida. Deep
draft ocean-going tankers have experienced no difficulty
in utilizing the St. Johns River Channel.

Piers, Wharves & Docks
There are 69 piers, wharves and docks at the Port of
Jacksonville, 53 of which are on the left bank of the St.
Johns River, and 16 on the right bank. Two of the piers
on the left bank are outside the city limits at the mouth
of Trout River. The U.S. Corps of Engineers owns and
operates one pier. The City of Jacksonville owns, in one
continuous plot, approximately 1 / miles of frontage on the
St. Johns River, on which are located the municipal
docks and terminals. Three piers are operated by the City
as public terminals.
Commodore Point Terminals owns a frontage extend-
ing 3760' along the north bank of the river at the bend.
Four terminal facilities are operated for handling foreign
and domestic general cargo. Much of the water front
property is owned and occupied by industrial plants.

Tides
The mean range of tide is 5.3' on the bar; 4.5' at
Mayport; 2.6' at Dames Point (14 miles above the en-
trance); and 1.1' at Jacksonville. High and low water


occur approximately two hours later at the foot of Hogan
Street in Jacksonville than at the jetties. Strong north-
easterly winds raise the water level about 2 feet at May-
port and Jacksonville, and strong southwesterly winds lower
the water level about 1/2' at Mayport and 1' at Jackson-
ville. Jacksonville Harbor has about a 2 knot mean velocity
in the channel at the strength of the tidal current. The
mean tidal range in Jacksonville Harbor is only 13 inches.
Anchorages
There are four permanent anchorages designed for
deep draft and shallow draft vessels in addition to several
other anchorages that may be used for specific purposes
such as awaiting quarantine inspection, explosives an-
chorages, etc.
Berthing Space
The Municipal Docks & Terminals piers, the Com-
modore Point Terminals and the Atlantic Coast Line Sea-
port Terminal provide over 10,000 linear feet of berthing
space, capable of handling deep water vessels. Other
private piers and wharves provide additional berthing
space for the various commodities privately handled by
vessel and barge.
Access By Inland Waterway
From the St. Johns River northward to Norfolk, Vir-
ginia, there is a continuous inland waterway along the
Atlantic coast with a project depth of 12' and a bottom
width of 90' in the land cuts and narrow creeks, and as
much as 300' in open waters. Southward from the St.
Johns River, a similar waterway 12' deep, 125' wide at the
bottom has been dredged for 221 miles to Fort Pierce,
south of Fort Pierce to Miami a depth of 7' at mean low
water is generally available in this waterway. Barge service
is being operated on this waterway as far north as Trenton,
New Jersey and southward to Miami.
The St. Johns River channel depth from Jacksonville
Harbor to Green Cove Springs, Florida, is 22'; from Green
Cove Springs to Sanford, Florida is 12'. Regular barge
service is maintained between Jacksonville and Sanford,
Florida, particularly fuel products. Upstream from Jack-
sonville this channel 12' deep extends some 150 miles
serving interior Florida cities, such as Sanford, situated
along the banks of the St. Johns River.
Port Charges
Terminal Tariff, F.M.B. No. 10, Municipal Docks and
Terminals of the City of Jacksonville, Florida sets out
the schedule of charges for wharfage storage, handling
and other port terminal services. Inquiries should be di-
rected to General Manager, Municipal Docks and Termi-
nals, P.O. Box 3005, Jacksonville, Florida.

Warehouses
Over 1,000,000 sq. ft. of dry storage space is available
in 11 public warehouses. In addition, over 400,000 sq. ft.
of dry storage space is currently used as transit sheds on
the water front and occasionally for storage. Nearly all
of the warehouses in the port are within a few blocks
of the water front and all are equipped with rail sidings.
All warehouses with two or more floors have elevators
with capacities of 1/4 to 2/2 tons.

Cold Storage
Six cold storage warehouses in the City of Jacksonville
provide over 1,125,000 cu. ft. of cold storage space.

Open Storage
Approximately 150 acres of space are available at
various locations along the water front of Jacksonville
which provide for storing bulk commodities not requiring
weather protection. All of the areas are served by tracks
of one or more of the rail carriers at the port.

Fuel and Molasses Storage
Eighteen oil company terminals, including the U.S.
Navy Depot at Trout River, have a combined petroleum
storage capacity in excess of 5,000,000 barrels. The Florida
Molasses Company has storage for 3,500,000 gallons of
molasses in bulk tanks at the Municipal Docks & Termi-
nals.

Supplies

modern machine shops, and large stock of replacement
parts are available.

Mechanical Handling Equipment
In addition to the cranes, hoists, conveyors, and port
trucks to handle normal ship cargoes at the several ter-
minals, additional equipment is available in the port at
several locations with capacities of lift at a 50' reach of
40 tons. Several private terminals are equipped with
conveyors but are not normally available for public use.

Railroad Facilities
The St. Johns River Terminals Company, subsidiary
of the Southern Railway Co., has connections with all


lines entering Jacksonville, and reaches the several steam-
ship piers not served direct by the Atlantic Coast Line, the
Seaboard Air Line and the Florida East Coast Railway Co.
The Municipal Railway connects with all lines entering
the port except the Florida East Coast Railway Co. and
operates about 12 miles of main line track and performs
the switching to and from the Municipal piers.

Industrial Zone Sites
Waterfront industrial tracts, ranging in size from 25
to 1,000 acres, are available on the north bank of the St.
Johns River between the downtown metropolitan area
and the sea. Complete rail, highway, and petroleum serv-
ices are available at many of these tracts now. There is a
bountiful supply of ground water.

Improvements
A warehouse and modernized pier facilities have been
constructed at Commodores Point Terminal to provide
in excess of 176,000 sq. ft. of storage space for imported
newsprint, etc.
Specialized facilities for handling barge shipments of
iron and steel products have been installed by the Jax
Terminal and Warehouse Company at its waterfront ter-
minal.
Other improvements include a new transit shed on
Pier 1 at Municipal Docks and Terminals.
The Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce, in connection
with other groups in the city has initiated action to petition
the U.S. Engineers to deepen the existing channel of the
St. Johns River to the ocean from 34 to 42 feet, present
depth of the entrance to Mayport. Congress has appro-
priated funds for the study currently being undertaken by
the Corps of Engineers.

Port Governing Body
Administrative authority over the port is exercised by
the City Commissioners of Jacksonville. The City Com-
mission of Jacksonville is composed of five members select-
ed by the qualified voters of the city on terms of four years
each. A general manager appointed by the City Commis-
sion and directly responsible to the Commissioner in charge
of Public Utilities is in immediate charge of the Municipal
Terminals.
The Duval County Port and Industrial Authority was
officially created November 5, 1956, by the Board of Coun-
ty Commissioners.

KEY WEST, FLORIDA


General Description of the Port
Key West is a U.S. Customs Port of Entry.
Key West is located on the island of Key West near
the western end of the Florida Keys. It is about 516
statute miles from Jacksonville, Florida; 157 miles from
Miami; 644 miles from New Orleans, La.; and 220 miles
south of the entrance to Tampa Bay. The inner harbor
lies along the western front of the city and is protected
on the eastern side by the island and on the other sides by
submerged reefs and sand flats. It has a total length of
about 42 miles and a width of about 1/4 miles. Man-of-
War Harbor, which extends 1/2 miles in a northerly
direction from Key West, has an available depth of from


22' to 28' over a width of about one-quarter mile, but
there are no terminal facilities within this area.
There are four channel approaches to Key West Har-
bor, which are known as Southeast, Southwest, Northwest,
and Main Ship Channels. Most of the vessels enter and
leave the port either through the Northwest or the Main
Ship Channel, deep-draft vessels using the Main Ship
Channel only. The Main Ship Channel enters the harbor
from a southerly direction, and is well marked for both
day and night navigation. The controlling depth as last
ascertained in 1930 was 30' with some possible reduction
in the normal 300' width. Northwest Channel has a depth
of 18' over a width of 250'; however, in May 1940 the









Industrial Division


controlling depth was 17' over a 160' width. In the Middle
Ground, which is an area 800' wide off the channel in
front of the main water front, the depth was 26' in 1929,
the last year in which complete soundings were made.

Piers, Wharves and Bulkheads
There are 13 piers, wharves, and bulkheads at Key
West, which are or can be used for commercial traffic.
These facilities have a combined berthing space of 12,059
linear feet with depths ranging from 25' to 3' at mean low
water.

Tides and Tidal Currents
The mean range of tide is 2.5 feet at the northwest
entrance and 1.3 feet in the Main Ship Channel and in
the harbor. The spring range of tide is 3.1 feet at the
northwest entrance and 1.6 feet in the Main Ship Channel
and in the harbor. Strong winds seem to have little effect
on the water level, but hurricanes from a southerly di-
rection have raised the level in the harbor 4' above mean
low water.
The tidal currents in Key West Harbor and Northwest
Channel set fair with the channels, and the times of maxi-
mum current at these places are nearly simultaneous, the
strength of the flood (flowing north) occurring about
/2V hours before high water, and the ebb about 2 hours
before low water at Key West. Slack water occurs about
/2 hour and 2 hours, respectively, after high and low water
at Key West. The average velocity at strength of both flood
and ebb is about 1 knot between Whitehead Spit and King-
fish Shoals; 1 / knots in Man-of-War Harbor and its
entrance; and 1 /2 knots in Northwest Channel abreast of
Middle Ground. Normal conditions are greatly modified
by winds.
Anchorages
There are no prescribed anchorage areas at Key West.
There are various points within the inner Man-of-War
Harbor and outside the harbor where vessels may find
safe anchorage in depths ranging from 3/2 to 6 fathoms.

Warehouses
There is a total storage space of 91,050 sq. ft. or 1,008,-
074 cu. ft. available in 11 warehouses, some of which also
serve as transit sheds.
Open Storage
There are no concerns at Key West engaged in storing
bulk commodities on a large scale.
Cold Storage
The only cold storage available at Key West is a small
amount of space in an ice-manufacturing plant. This space
is limited to the needs of local merchants.
Fuel Storage
Tank capacity of about 75,500 barrels in the area.


Supplies
Electric current, water and oil bunkering are available
at the Port. There are no facilities for supplying bunker
coal to vessels.

Mechanical Handling Equipment
No facilities for making heavy lifts are available at the
port. Practically all cargo moving over the docks consists
of commodities which can be handled by ship's tackle or
through side ports of vessels.

MIAMI, FLORIDA
Under the Jurisdiction of the Board of County Commissioners
of Dade County, Florida
Arthur E. Darlow, Seaport Director


General Description of the Port*
Miami Harbor is on the Atlantic Coast of the State
of Florida near the southern extremity of the peninsula
about 335 miles south of the mouth of the St. Johns River
and 160 miles north and east of Key West, Florida. The
City of Miami is located on the west shore of Biscayne
Bay at Miami River. The City of Miami Beach is located
on the peninsula on the east side of the Bay, opposite
Miami. The harbor embraces the artificial basins, slips,
and channels that have been dredged along the Bay front
of the two cities and in the Bay and through the shoal water
of Biscayne Bay to the Ocean.
The entrance to the main channel is directly east of
the City of Miami, approximately 5.8 miles. The sea buoy
marking the channel entrance through the reef is about
2 miles offshore. The entrance is an artificial cut 1,000'
wide, known as Government Cut, dredged across the
southern end of Miami Beach. It is protected by jetties
and is well marked. A channel has been dredged 30' deep
and 500' wide on the sea end and 300' wide through the
Cut to Biscayne Bay. This entrance affords the most direct
access to the Port, has the greatest navigable capacity, and
is now the only channel used by ocean vessels bound to and
from the Port of Miami.
A channel 300' wide and 30' deep has been dredged
across Biscayne Bay leading from the channel dredged
through the land cut to a turning basin in front of the
municipal docks.
Three connecting basins are situated along the Miami
waterfront. The municipal turning basin, located in front
of the commercial docks, is 1,400' north and south, 1,350'
east and west, with a controlling depth of 30'. Immediately
south is the Florida East Coast Railway Terminal Basin,
with a controlling depth of 13'. Further south is located the
Municipal Yacht Anchorage Basin with a depth of 16',
extending along Bayfront Park to the mouth of the Miami
River.
Miami River has a channel dredged to 15' at high
water, 150' wide for a distance of 3 miles above the
mouth, thence 125' wide to a point 4.1 miles above the
mouth, thence 90' wide to a point 5/2 miles above the
mouth.

Industrial Division


Causeway Terminal, privately owned, is located at
MacArthur Causeway, Miami Beach, Florida.

Tides & Tidal Currents*
The mean tidal range at the entrance to Miami Harbor
is 2.5 feet, and in the Bay it is about 2 feet. The extreme
tidal range is about 4.5 feet at the entrance. Easterly winds
sometimes raise the water level 1.5 feet at the entrance
and 1 foot at the Bay, while westerly winds lower the water
level about 1 foot at the entrance and about 0.5 foot in
the Bay.
The tidal currents at the entrance to Biscayne Bay
have considerable velocity, and care should be taken in
entering the channel. The currents have a velocity of 3
to 4 knots through the main ship channel.

Anchorages*
The prescribed anchorage area for vessel anchoring
outside the harbor is located eastward of a line about 1.5
nautical miles offshore and northward of a line about 0.5
nautical mile north of the sea buoy at the entrance to the
ship channel. The northern and southern extremities of
this area are marked by spar buoys.
Vessels desiring to anchor off the entrance to the har-
bor of Miami are required to do so within this area, to
avoid possible injury to cables laid on the Ocean bottom
in the vicinity.

Intracoastal Waterways*
The Intracoastal Waterway is in general 100' wide and
8' deep at local mean low water from Jacksonville to
Miami, a distance of 372 miles. The controlling water
depth is 7.5 feet.
From Miami south there is an inland waterway 75'
wide and 7' deep at mean low water to a point immediate-
ly south of Cross Bank, Florida Bay, a distance of 63 miles.
A partially protected channel with a ruling depth of about
5' is available from Miami to Key West.

Cold Storage
A cold storage plant, owned and operated by Dade
County, is located on Pier 3. Water dockage is available
on one side of the pier and railroad and trailer platform
on the other. The approximate storage capacity of the
plant is fifty average freight cars, or 9,848 sq. ft. The one-
hundred ton freezer plant uses Freon Gas, direct expansion
and can maintain a minimum temperature of ten degrees
below zero. The fully automatic temperature controls pro-
vide for quick conversion from freezer to chill rooms when
needed. The machinery consists of multiple unit compres-
sors which permit repair and replacements without stop-
ping the machinery completely.

Fuel Oil
A major oil company receives about 55 oil tankers a
year at Pier 1, Port of Miami. These vessels bring in bulk
cargoes of Bunker C. Fuel Oil, Diesel Fuel and Road As-
phalt products. The aggregate total gross tonnage repre-
sented by these tankers is approximately 50,000 tons. These
products are distributed by barge and transport truck from
Vero Beach to Key West on the Atlantic Coast and to the
Okeechobee Region and to Ft. Myers on the Gulf of
Mexico.

The asphalt products are used on the highways and
air fields of South Florida.

PALM BEACH, FLORIDA
Under the Jurisdiction of the Board of Commissioners of the
Port of Palm Beach District
Joel Wilcox, Port Director


General Description of the Port
The Port of Palm Beach is located in 80 degrees 03'
west latitude, 26 degrees 46' north longitude, in Palm
Beach County, on the eastern coast of the southern part
of the Florida peninsula.
The Port of Palm Beach is located 71 miles north
of Miami Harbor on a salt water sound known as Lake
Worth and is 1 1/3 miles from the 27' contour of the
Atlantic Ocean to which it is connected by an artificial


cut at the north end of Lake Worth and known as Lake
Worth Inlet. The Inlet is located within the town limits
of Riviera Beach, Florida.
Entrance to the harbor is by a dog-leg channel running
due west through the jetties and then turning southwest-
erly to the terminals. The Channel is 300' wide narrowing
to 200' in width as it continues across the lake another
3,000' leading into a trapezoidal turning basin 1,250' by
1,225' adjacent to the port terminals on the west shore.









Industrial Division


Minimum depth in the channel and turning basin is 27'
below MLW.
The Port District owns and controls a total of 173
acres of land, extending from the water front on the east
side of the property to U.S. Highway #1 on the west and
including marginal lands surrounding Peanut Island on a
strip extending northeast to the Riviera Bridge. The Dis-
trict has acquired a strip of land lying west of Highway
#1 to provide trackage to a new 900' loading platform be-
longing to the West Palm Beach Terminal Company.

Slips, Wharves & Berthing Space
The Port of Palm Beach has 2 slips. Slip #1 is 690'
long, 210' wide and 30' deep and is leased by the West
Palm Beach Terminal Co., in operation of the West India
Fruit & Steamship Co., car ferries from a loading ramp
located at the west end of the slip. It is enclosed with a
marginal wharf bulkhead providing 1,380 linear feet of
berthing space.
Slip #2 is 650' long, 225' wide with an average water
depth of 30' at-MLW. It has a marginal wharf of 450
linear feet along the north side. A marginal wharf running
north and south for 450' is located along the west side of
the turning basin. The Port of Palm Beach operates Slip
#2 and the marginal wharf.

Piers
The designation of the piers on north and south sides
of Slips #1 and #2 are Piers 1, 2, 3, and 4.

Tides & Currents
The mean tidal range in the ocean at Lake Worth
Inlet is 2.8'; at the Port of Palm Beach terminals it is
1.8'. Variations of 7' in water surface elevations have re-
sulted from storms.
The current through the inlet is ordinarily 3 miles per
hour or less, but under certain combinations of wind and
tide, velocities up to 6 miles per hour have been observed.

Access By Intracoastal Waterway
The Intracoastal Waterway traverses Lake Worth and
passes through the port turning basin. A depth of 12' and
width of 125' for this waterway was authorized in 1945
but present depth is 8' and width 100'.

Port Charges
Port of Palm Beach Tariff #4 sets out the current
rates in effect. Inquiries should be directed to The Man-
ager, Freight & Traffic Dept., Port of Palm Beach, P.O.
Box 990, West Palm Beach, Florida.

Warehouses
Two large transit sheds provide 43,400 sq. ft. of ware-
house space at ship-side for general cargo and an additional
steel warehouse provides 21,600 sq. ft. for bagged cargo.


Open Storage
200,000 sq. ft. of lumber storage and delivery area lo-
cated with 1,200' of ship-side. Open storage space of ap-
proximately 50,000 sq. ft. is available adjacent to the two
slips and additional space can be utilized on port grounds
nearby.

Fuel & Fuel Storage
Adequate pipe lines for the discharge of bulk petroleum
cargoes are available in Slip #2 and along the marginal
wharf of Slip #1. Florida Power & Light Company's fuel
oil tanks have a capacity of 4,620,000 gallons or 110,000
barrels.

Supplies
There are no facilities available at the Port for coal
bunkering but oil bunkering is available for the fueling of
ships.
Electric current is available at the waterfront over the
lines of the Florida Power & Light Company.
Water is supplied to the facilities of the Port through
a 6" main from the town water plant in Riviera Beach
and is available at all ship berths.
The town of Riviera Beach Fire Department has access
over paved streets to all waterfront facilities of the Port
and has adequate pumpers for fire protection. Water
mains, hydrants, hose and extinguishers have been provided
on the marginal wharves and in the warehouses and transit
sheds.

Marine Repair Facilities
Minor repairs only can be handled at the Port through
special arrangement with the dockmaster. The nearest
dry dock is located at Jacksonville, Florida, 280 miles north
of the Port of Palm Beach.

Industrial Zone Sites
There are a few choice sites available.

Mechanical Handling Equipment
There are no fixed cranes, elevators or other hoisting
facilities at the Port. General cargo is usually handled to
and from vessels by ship's tackle, hand-operated trucks and
portable hoisting equipment. The West India Fruit and
Steamship Company owns and operates its own conveyors
and other stevedoring equipment. Mobile equipment is
available for public use at standard rental rates.

Railroad Trackage and Facilities
A spur railroad under lease to and operated by the
West Palm Beach Terminal Company and connecting di-
rectly with the Florida East Coast Railway serves the entire
Port area. There are 5Y2 miles of track capable of spotting
600 cars.








Florida Development Commission


Improvements
A new $80,000 administration building has been com-
pleted and occupied; additional railroad tracks are being
laid and a second railroad car ferry transfer bridge is be-
ing built in Slip #1.

Port Governing Body
The Port of Palm Beach is administered by a Port Dis-
trict composed of three members known as the Board of

PORT EVERGLADES, FLORIDA
Under the Jurisdiction of the Broward County Port Authority
Mr. R. T. Spangler, Port Manager


General Description of the Port
Port Everglades is located on the Lower East Coast of
Florida, approximately 23 miles north of Miami and 48
miles south of Palm Beach. The port is located within
the south city limits of Fort Lauderdale and the north
city limits of Hollywood, county of Broward.
The harbor location is in 20 degrees, 05-y' north
latitude and 80 degrees, 05' west longitude.
A landlocked harbor, Port Everglades lies on the At-
lantic Ocean, a little less than a mile and a half from the
main route of ships plying between North Atlantic, Gulf
and Caribbean ports.
The distance from the 35-foot contour of the ocean
through the entrance channel to the turning basin is only
1.7 miles.
Port Everglades has a project depth of 35' MLW.


Entrance to the harbor is by a straight 7300' channel,
measured from the 35' contour of the ocean to the east
edge of the turning basin.
The channel runs in a due east/west direction. It is
500' wide at its seaward end, 400' wide at the jetty en-
trance, and 300' wide from a point 1000' within the jetty
entrance to a point 500' east of the turning basin. From
this point, it flares to a width of 1000' at the turning basin.
The turning basin measures 1200' wide, east and west,
and 2250', north and south.

Federal Project (Improvements)
Dredging was started in March, 1961, on a $3,291,210
federal contract for improvements to the entrance chan-
nel and turning basin. Main features of the project, which
will be completed in 1963, are: dredging the existing turn-









Florida Development Commission


ing basin and inner channel to 37 feet; dredging the outer
entrance channel from the jetty line to the east extremity
to 40 feet; extending the turning basin northwardly 1,200
feet to a depth of 31 feet, and southwardly on a diagonal
line some 1700', then east 1275' to a depth of 37 feet. All
dredging is being done with two-foot overdredge.
The Broward County Port Authority awarded in 1961
a $427,000 contract for dredging its three slips and within
100 feet of all marginal wharves to a depth of 37 feet.

Warehouses
Warehousing facilities total in excess of two million
square feet at the Port of Tampa.

Cold Storage
Of the one million sq. ft. of cold storage space in Tampa
proper, more than 95% is adjacent to the waterfront.

Fuel & Grain Storage
The Port of Tampa has 2 grain elevators of 310,000 to
360,000 bushels capacity, and storage capacity for over
6/2 million barrels of oil products.

Improvements
The U. S. Congress has approved a channel depth of
34' for the Port of Tampa and work has already been
completed.
In addition, the Port Authority is working on face 1
of a proposed project for the development of Tampa harbor
which would provide suitable areas for industrial sites,
roads, railroad trackage and waterfront facilities. This pro-
posed development would provide a channel to serve two
separate upland areas. The channel would be 400 feet wide
by 34 feet deep and 9,000 feet in length. The development
would provide also 22 additional deepwater berths (500
feet long) on the extension to Hooker's Point, as compared
with the same number of deepwater berths, 500 feet or
longer, now in the entire Port.*
