Went with my 13 year old daughter, I’m 51. We had two choices to launch from, West of peanut Island from the Northside of the Marina or from the North Phil Foster Park. Once I got there and looked at the distances I choose the small beach North end of the marina. It’s about 1/3 the distance and straight shot. Easier for my skinny daughter. I dropped the gear off at the drop off zone. She stayed with the gear as I whipped around and park d the car in the marinas free parking.
Stand Up Paddling
East side of Peanut island is nice but if you head too far out you can get caught in the outgoing tide shooting through the inlet.
