|Cat Island to Dauphin Island|
|Dauphin Island to Perdido|
|Perdido to Ft. Walton|
Be careful with the bridge clearance at Ft. Walton and Destin. They are two of the lower fixed bridges on the GIWW at 49 feet. But locals say to not try it if you are 47+ feet above the water.
The GIWW from Panama City to Apalachicola is interesting. I didn't run into any problems on this stretch. Then only nerve wracking section is through Lake Wimco where the channel is fairly narrow and the nav markers far apart. It shallows very quickly out of the channel here. But the scenery of cypress trees,spanish moss, and bayous is nice.
