Get the "skipper bob" ICW waterway guide. gives an almost mile by mile anchorage and marina guide. Have a great time

You going around Florida, or through it on the canal? And be careful to wait for a stretch of good weather between Tampa and St. Mark's, since you don't have any ICW in between and have to go offshore.

I could give you a little local advice for the Mobile to Lake Pontchartrain part. the Florida part I'm just mentioning, I haven't done it.

I'm planning on going through Lake Okeechobee. How many days would you guess between St. Marks and Tampa?
