What We Saw

Mullet Creek is an excellent paddle for beginners, to see dolphins or manatees, or to go fishing.

Putting in at the fish camp, one can paddle through a no wake area to a series of Mangrove fringed islands in the Indian River to the right (west) or along residential canals toward the left (east). If you venture into the Indian River, make sure there is not too much wind to paddle safely.

Manatees often congregate in the residential canals, an easy paddle for sightseeing leisurely.
