Orange Beach Marina from the Intra-Coastal Waterway:
1. At the ICW marker #57, turn S passing
on the W side of #57. Proceed S approximately ½ mile
passing in between 17 and 18 on your way to #15. Keep
#15 to starboard at which point of passing turn almost
due W keeping #13 to starboard as you continue to red
#12 on your portside. After #12, make a dogleg to your
port on the way to #11 and #9 keeping 50-75' off the
starboard side of the channel. Continue down the channel
favoring the red buoy side for best water.
As you approach the Perdido Pass Bridge do not pass
under it toward the Gulf but parallel it in the channel
running E/W along the N side of the bridge. At the
western end of the bridge there are 2 channels, one
going W into Cotton Bayou, the other going N from marker
#8 and #9. This will take you into Terry Cove as you
pass the boat ramp on the W side (port). Just past this
ramp is the last Coast Guard marker #12. Look due W
(about 150 - 200 yards) to see markers #1 and #2. These
markers curve southward and then westward along private
docks and residences. Follow them keeping red to the
starboard and at the very end you will see the Marina’s
private channel which runs due S.
To reach Orange Beach Marina

follow directions listed above number 2. N into Terry
Cove, W into channel leading to OBM private channel.
