Default Cape Coral cut thru

After coming out of the canals at Cape Coral, can you cut thru,( yellow line below), to get to the marked channel? Looking at the chart it looks doable. New to the area.

Boat is a World Cat 255dc.

Yes you can but watch the tides. It does get a bit skinny in there. This would be the preferred route and marked channel. The Navionics web app shows the depths.

You can most times, wouldn't on real low winter tides. Shallowest I've seen is about 2.5 feet right at the beginning from the Cape side and about the half way point. Tilt up the motors a bit just in case but it's all muddy bottom there anyway.

With your World Cat no problem. You only draft 16”-18” no problem.

I do that every time I head out. There is the one shoal spot in the middle, it really is only an issue at extreme low tides.

I go through there often. If you are unsure, just wait a few minutes, there are always boats using that route and you can follow.
