This drop is in a residential area of Port Charlotte, Florida.
It was a well developed drop with a paved road into a park and a gravel beach to drop the yaks.
Initially, you paddle into undeveloped mangroves. Lots of mullet everywhere.
As you paddle out there are a number of deserted islands in the area.
We started seeing kayaks coming from the outside direction and there is another beach drop further out this inlet.
It is a great morning in late May with flat water and not too much boat traffic yet, even with the Memorial Day Weekend.
Pretty quickly, we started to see houses across the Canal. Port Charlotte is pretty developed along canals.
We could see boat traffic as the next inlet was a pretty busy canal from a large boat ramp.
Yaks paddle near pleasure boats ahead of us.
The houses were very large on this canal, but most of the snowbirds were up North.
Looking out towards Charlotte Harbor.
Must be crabs in the neiborhood.
In the summer, you always have to watch out for Florida Thunderstorms starting about 2PM.
This beach park seemed to be where all the kayaks were coming from. We found out later that outfitters used this park to drop off rented boats for day paddlers.
Quite a bit of boat traffic was around so we suggest this drop in the off season on a midweek day.
This boat channel was busy, but had lots of Redfish. Book your Florida vacation with us and we'll tell you where it is.,
