Directions to Venice Marina:

The end of Highway 23 will narrow into two lanes.  Curve right and go over the hurricane
protection levee to the left.  There will be a stop sign at the base of the levee with a large sign
across the road saying "Welcome to the Venice Jump Basin".  Turn right.  This is Tidewater
Road.  Stay on it for 2.4 miles.  There will be a 4'x8' dark blue sign on the left reading "Bud's Boat
Rentals".  Turn left and go 1.0 miles to the Venice Marina sign on the right.  Enter and go
approximately 200 yards to the elevated store and grill on the left.
