We are a Group of boaters in Central Florida near Orlando who have purchased a boat from VForce Marine Orlando (formerly BMC Boats) and we'd love for you to join us on monthly cruises all over Florida.

Disappearing Island is a large, popular sandbar in Florida’s Ponce Inlet, near New Smyrna Beach. Disappearing Island got its name because it “disappears” at high tide, and is only visible during low tides. During high tide, the Disappearing Island sandbar is submerged underwater. The water level and depth varies according to the tide levels, which are determined by the lunar cycle and other factors. 

The best tide information for Disappearing Island can be found via NOAA, and the Ponce Inlet measuring station, where Disappearing Island is located. Many people think the best time to visit Disappearing Island is at low slack tide. Slack tide is a period where the tide is between “in” and “out” stages, and remains stable for several hours. Visitors should plan on visiting Disappearing Island when the tide is low, and plan to depart before the island disappears. Visitors should also plan ahead to ensure they can free their boat, if they choose to beach their boat.
