Ah but the mom and pop restaurants are fantastic. Plus you are at the mouth of the cross FL canal.

I was told the Stuart cut was a bit dangerous but, I never found it the least bit of concern. Just like any cut, common sense and caution are the 2 key words.

You want to have fun, do the Bakers Haul Over cut between Miami and Aventura. It is narrow, remember the delta and the rocks on shore. Stay close to the shore but keep an eye on your depth. LOL I dont care what the rules might say..... If you are outbound, drive past it before you make your escape to the sea so you can check the inbound 'traffic'.

If you're still in Stuart, and you like really good beer, get yourself to Side Door Brewing, out on US 1. The best Porter I have ever had, anywhere! (And I've had a lot, everywhere!)

I agree that Haulover can be dicey, just have enough power and don’t bury the bow. I’ve seen Port Lucie tricky at times too.

I have heard that about Port St Lucie/Stuart cut. My experience is limited but if one watches the wave and tide and wind (standard for any cut) it will pose no problem. Riding the waves can be fun.
