That's probably the best boating adventure I've had. Most of the way there are no speed zones, at least that's the way it was the last time I ran it.
In Clewiston (where Rolan Martin's marina is located) the two restaurants in town have a pick up and return service. The bar in the Clewiston Inn has a 360 degree (all four walls) of an Everglades "seascape" and the whole bar is bathed in tourquoise light, yes, tourquoise light. I talked about that for years. You have to see it to believe it.
