Launch Location: Boat ramp at Harbour Towne Marina.
Fees: There is a $8 fee if you need trailer parking at the boat ramp. Parking is free if you don’t have a trailer.
Personal Notes: We launched from this location planning on paddling over to Whisky Creek and relaxing while drifting with the outgoing tide but we took too long getting there and the water was already too low to paddle. Wanting to paddle more we headed south along the Intercoastal waterway and under the Dania Beach drawbridge.
After passing under the Dania Beach drawbridge we then headed west, going against the tide, until we got to the lake at Westlake. Once there we paddled through the mangroves to the Anne Kolb Nature Center where we relaxed for a bit before heading back against the incoming tide.
