This is a very pleasant, tranquil paddling experience. The cypress trees offer wildlife habitat, and the further you get from the road noise of Hwy. 122, the more bird life you will see. We saw anhingas as well as tricolor and white herons in the brief time we were there. Other wild life comes with a more precautionary note. Be wary of the numerous wasp’s nests that hang near the water on twigs. There may be the occasional alligator; we flushed a six-footer when we paddled too close to a clump of cypresses. Despite that heart-pounding surge, however, this was an enjoyable, peaceful paddle. On a weekday, you would probably have the spot to yourself.
