If you have the GPS numbers to your boat ramp I will key them in and tell you how far. I have a program that will do it for me.

It is about 50 miles one way, to go down to Destin. Be very carefulto stay in the channelonce you get east of the Navarre Bridge. The channel will change directions very quickly. At times you will be hugging the barrier island other timesyou wioll be on the far north side.You will approach a island about mid way down make sure that you stay to the south. The north side is very shallow. I would also recomend making a trail if you plan on coming back at night.
