Meeting point

The exact launch site will depend on wind direction and will be communicated between 18-24 hours prior to the tour. It will either be at the NW Haulover Canal Kayak Launch or the Beacon 42 boat ramp. There is no address for these launch locations. The address for the MINWR is the address for the visitor's center and not for the exact launch location Helpful landmark: There is an observatory across from the boat ramp entrance. Look for the "giant white golf ball" and the boat ramp entrance is directly across the street
