5.2 West of Highway 29 on Highway 41 (unmarked turnoff), Naples, FL
The upper East River is narrow winding river replete with Mangrove tunnels and bays. The lower East River is wider channel and empties into Fakahatchee Bay. We will paddle to a landing in Fakahatchee bay ad return.
The paddle is 12 miles round trip. The pace will be moderate. There is little open water so this is suitable for most paddlers that are comfortable with 12 miles at a moderate pace. There should be some tidal assist. This is a popular paddle and one of the MIPA 10 "essentials."
