Launch at Loreto Court onto Shakett Creek and go up to Fox Creek.
This is a nice launch -our paddle will be approx 6 miles in probably 4 hours.
NO facilities at launch but nice boat ramp.

Directions: From Hwy. 41 in Nokomis turn east at Captain Eddy’s Seafood Restaurant onto Colonia Lane. Follow Colonia Lane across railroad tracks and past a cemetery, then look for the small Suncoast Industrial Park on the left. Just beyond the industrial park, turn left on to River Blvd. South and go northward to Loreto Court. Turn left on Loreto Court and follow it until it dead ends. The ramp is on the right.
Shakett creek can be windy when heading up to Fox Creek so this is not a beginner paddle as it can be a bit strenuous.
Bring a picnic lunch.
