Manatee Pocket is a sheltered bay off the Intracoastal and Okeechobee Waterways. Boaters in this location can boat westward through the state of Florida via Lake Okeechobee to Fort Myers or access the Atlantic Ocean and travel internationally to the Bahamas and Caribbean islands. After a recent dredging project, the channel is now navigable to large boats again and the pocket is home to the historic fishing village of Port Salerno. Port Salerno is located between Hobe Sound and Stuart, near the northern tip of Jupiter Island in Martin County, Florida.
