    You have a couple of long manatee zones, I would estimate around 45 minutes to an hour.  Around 25 miles.

    25 miles in an hour with long manatee zones? that doesn't add up unless you are going really fast in the non manatee zones. Let's see what google says...

    Depending on where you start, Google says about 28 miles, I would think in a boat with manatee zones it would take a couple hours to do that at the very least? Unless you can do 25 mph in the zones. I don't know?

    Thanks for the info. I'm planning to go tomorrow to desapearing island. Was told that most of the boat ramps don't have enough paparking spot for the trailer. I don't want to go and have an issue with that. Is this true?

    That would depend on the time you arrive. It's usually pretty empty everywhere when i get there. But yes, I do think if coming from the south, the parking can be limited for the amount of boats I have seen driving around

    I will be arriving around 10:00 am. It might full by then.

    What ramps were you considering? 
  • nacaronacaro Posts: 19 Greenhorn
    That's the situation. I don't know the ramps on that area. My first time in Ponce Inlet.

    What size boat?  if you are in a smaller vessel you can cut through at edgewater going southeast through government cut by jbs then back down sw out by georges bar and bypass all of the manatee zone except the NSB stuff.
