Jax to Okee Waterway to Gulf

I hope cruise from Jacksonville, down the East Coast Intercoastal to the Okeechobee Waterway and across to the gulf Intercoastal. Can anyone provide any references for marinas, hotels, and small vessel navigation? Any helpful websites or publications will be greatly appreciated!
Thanks
Brett

For an online reference, Cruisers' Net - Home . It will have all the latest news along your route. Skipper Bob's Guide to Marina's would be your best guide for marina's. There are many good one's along the route. And, hopefully, you have towing insurance.

The waterway is well marked and mostly sheltered water, and mainly requires paying attention. And be sure to check that the Okechobee is open for transit.

Well Capt, it has been a while, maybe 20 years, back in the days when most ANY westbound tied up at Frances Langfords the night before, if the water is there, (I can stand corrected) but I think I remember this sequence for the 5 locks, Port , Port, Starboard, Starboard, Port.....as in fenders and lines.(edit. I got to thinking this morning it had to be more than 20 years...time flys when you get into your 60's...because Frances a.k.a. Mrs. Evinrude, sold the place in the mid 80s; however I have heard it is still a pretty good marina...search Frances Langford Outrigger, have a good trip)

whats you mast hight? Labelle has a free city marina whit water and power. Just to the west of the draw bridge on the south side. On the north side is a motel with dock space for rent. Four fixed bridges to you west. The first is the I-75 bridge,I pretty sure the water mark is wrong. It read 52.5 & my height is 54. That was at high tide. We tied off and backed through with lines. Ft Myers has moorings & anchorages.
