Launch Location: Boat ramp at Harbour Towne Marina.
Personal Notes: We launched from this location about an hour before sunset and headed to the maze of small waterways east of the Intercoastal. The waterways crisscross behind houses and under small bridges.
One of the waterways lead to Mayan Lake only which is only accessible by small boats. We were amazed by the amount of birds and fish jumping out of the water.
The other waterways crisscross between the Intercostal and Lake Sylvia. Lake Sylvia seems to be a popular spot for live on sailboats to stay anchored.
