Today we went north from the put in about 1.5 miles. There is a passage to the right moving into Mosquito Lagoon proper. Keeping to the right there is a river-like channel following the island south. This channel ends at a sandy shore suitable for a quick rest stop and picnic or an overnight campsite. There are also a number of NPS campsites in the vicinity.
There are miles of relatively sheltered paddling in and around mangrove islands. The water level can be low so watch the tide tables. However, this keeps the powerboats at bay. There is a plenty of marine life below water and a very diverse bird colony above. This is a terrific place for either a day paddle or a weekend destination.
