    Florida Panhandle Riders - I need your help!

    My kiddo and I want to find a good safe place to good in the panhandle of Florida to put the skis in the blue water and white sand. Just to experience it. Where would you recommend?

    for Florida,the choices are pretty much limitless,, a short list...

    St Johns River
    Kissimmee River
    Tampa Bay & outlaying areas
    Peace River
    Estero Bay
    Lake Placid/Lake June
    Marco Island 10k islands
    the Keys.

    i can't speak much for the east coast, i'm pretty much a central/SW rider

    I was thinking more panhandle like around Pensacola or even the Destin area.

    From Perdido Key to Apalachicola, the wife and I have rode at those and all in between. You cant go wrong with any of them. Throw a dart and see where it sticks.

    Thanks Troy, any other input out there? I think we are going to be staying in Pensacola. Just trying to figure out where to put in and ride once we are there.

    When we rode in Pensacola we launched at a park that was closer to Perdido Key. The channel from the bay to the gulf was pretty cool. Big waves. Also on the point of the channel oppisite of Fort Pickens, there was a place where there is a bunker and old gun emplacements. Offshore about 1 1/2 miles is the old USS Massachusetts. The bay is cool, just watch out for shallow spots. The intercoastal water way cuts through the bay so as long as you stay between the markers you will be ok.

    Cool, thanks man. Are there places that are shallow enough to stop a ski? Is it mostly sand in the inland bays and waterways or gotta watch out for rocks too? I don't mind accidentally beaching on some pristine white sand, but running up on a rock island would put a serious damper in the trip.

    We were thinking about putting here in at Bayou Grande and running east towards Destin.

    Then thinking about putting in here at Gulf Beach Heights the next day and running towards Alabama.

    That sound like a decent plan?
