Canoeing with kids from Elanda Point

Anyone know whether it is safe/ advisable to canoe with 2 children (aged 8 and 10) from Elanda Point on Lake Coolharaba up into the Everglades? We've heard it can get pretty rough in the afternoon and don't want to cram it all into a morning trip.

Correct it often can be windy and choppy and tough going with the paddling.

It can get choppy in the afternoon when the wind gets up. I took about 90 11 year old school students up there a couple of years ago staying at the Elanda Point Camping area. We canoed the opposite way to Booreen Point with some groups doing it the morning and some in the afternnoon.

Morning groups it was like a Millpond. In the afternoon I got out and walked dragging the kayak behind me as I was feeling slightly "sea sick" believe it or not. Quite a few kids took up this option as it was took heavy going for them in the late afternoon.

In near the shore at Elanda Point it is walking distance for quite a distance out so from this point of view this end of it is very safe for kids.
