Water

The county is approximately 15 miles from two of Florida's 14 ports: Port of Fort Pierce to the north, and Port of Palm Beach to the south. The Port of Palm Beach is the fourth busiest port in Florida and the 21st largest in container thru-put. Port Everglades, Port Canaveral and Port of Miami-Dade can be reached within two hours.

 

Martin County is the only east coast community that can offer access to both the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, thanks to the Okeechobee Waterway. Florida's only cross-state waterway stretches from Fort Myers on the west coast to Stuart on the east, running through Lake Okeechobee.
