"It's nice at coot bay pond I think I would worry if leaving the car at that desolate place. Here is the actual route video from coot bay pond to east cape https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=QTMFfsZpGtk"

"Totally agree with Flex. Also, there is an area that is known as the graveyard on the spoon bill pass trail where boats get really beat up. Don't know what material your SUP is made of."

"Scott, that's a good route, I'd just like to suggest you start and end at Coot Bay Pond. That way you can avoid the boring canal paddles, have a nicer place to launch and save a few miles. Have a great trip!"

"That's just a powerboat route. I don't know about a paddleboard but don't go to Cape Sable without using Spoonbill Pass, easy, protected, no traffic and well documented on this website."

I'm looking for a paddling and camping partner for Nov. 20,21,22. leaving from flamingo and doing a 2 night camping trip.  First night NW cape, second night South Joe.  final route will be selected based on weather forecast. This is Preferred route for now. mileage will about 20 or less miles per day at a touring pace. any takers?  Note I'll be paddling a standup board so I'll be looking to take advantage of the best wind directions.  See More
