near Shell Island, Florida (United States)

The launch area is at the end of Shell Island Road near the Rookery Bay research facility. Shell Island Road is a 2.8-mile long, low-speed paved road through an upland preserve where deer, tortoises, and other wildlife are common. The gate at the road (usually) opens at sunrise (±). The shallow sand/gravel launch is into 4 acres protected cove with an outlet to the north. Free parking is a short walk away after you unload.

Today's paddle was a lazy loop at slack tide with no wind and no current and pretty high water and plenty of sun except at the end.
