I was in and out a few times this summer, used Longboat Pass. Never saw less than 15. Bridge opens on demand. When passing under bridge, hug structure with a quick turn southward then along Jewfish Key to pick up ICW, very easy to read the water in any conditions your likely to be running in. Overall, will add little if any additional time to your trip.

Even though I have local knowledge, I personally avoid the Sarasota passes you mentioned, too unpredictable (can change with passage of cold front). Running a 75 Hatt that drafts 6+.
