South Joe River Chickee/Tarpon Creek Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Return to the Joe River, turn right, and continue paddling southeast. When the Joe River turns east, it widens progressively until you reach the entrance to Tarpon Creek. If you paddle on a windy day, take care, especially if the wind is against you, as this is open water. We once had to paddle this section on a day with a small-craft advisory. It was a serious challenge. Watch for USCG marker 10 at the entrance to Tarpon Creek."
