Ponce de Leon Inlet

Is Ponce Inlet good? We're heading north. We could duck in at Canaveral and up the ICW and back out at Ponce Inlet. Looks too far to daysail out of Canaveral and back in at Ponce. We draw 5' 6".
Thnx

Re: Ponce de Leon Inlet

Ponce isn't the most friendly inlet. Current can run 4-plus knots. I'd only chance it at high tide, with fair weather and with local knowledge.

Re: Ponce de Leon Inlet

Well I live in New Smyrna and go out of Ponce all the time. Its a safe inlet although will get rough on an outgoing tide with E to SE winds but not normally unsafe. Hug the jettys on the north side of the inlet and follow the channel markers in/out and you will be fine.
