Boating at Crane Island


The More The Better

Crane Island is an island within Amelia Island Florida and the western boundary of the island sits directly on the Intracoastal Waterway. From a navigation perspective, we are situated on Kingsley Cut and channel marker 18 is just off our island at nearly the midway point. As we thought about and planned for the Dock program here at Crane Island has a couple of important goals in mind:

– We wanted our boat and water lovers to have an easy way to enjoy getting into and out of the water.

– We also wanted it to be a safe experience and we wanted it to be aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

The plan we have put in place reflects these goals and we believe the Docks of Crane Island will be a bit of signature of our island hamlet and will be a bit of a “launching pad” for daily adventures and experiences one can have to engage the natural environment around us. We have 29 slips in all for the 113 properties here and we connected with the No Profile Boat Lift team to create a lift system that was both beautiful and safe. Many visual details of the system are below and we invite you to visit the No Profile website at 

Deep-water lots are always a prized real estate find and it is particularly special here on Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach as there are not many to choose from. We believe we have nearly doubled the capacity of deep-water dockage here on Amelia Island and the proximity is also quite nice as it literally steps away not thousands of feet away like so many on-island docks.

We invite you to take a closer look and we welcome your questions and comments about our docks and what homesites have deeded dock access.

Alice Park

Alice Park

At the center of the community, we memorialize Miss Alice with Alice Park. All of Crane Island was once her park. We cherish a space at its very heart, in Alice’s name, to remember that no matter how far we have come, it all began here.

The River House

The River House

Crane Island’s River House is the gathering place for the Island. A scale fitting of the 113 property owners who will live here. A place to meet friends, share the tales of the day. A place to work out, a place to swim a lap, a place to watch the sun go down and celebrate the day you just lived. Come and explore the details of The River House from detailed plans, animation and inspiration images. We hope you enjoy.
