Tides, Currents

I am planning a kayak paddle tommorrow one way & my wife will (hopefully) pick me up at the other end.

I want to make it easier on myself so I want to paddle with the tide

I am going to paddle along the intra coastal in South Fl. Low tide is at 7:30 AM & I plan to be in the water at 8:30 AM.

There is a Inlet about a mile to the south where I am going to put in.

My question is wil I be paddling with the tide if I go north or south?

on where you put in and what inlet you are near.

From 7:30 the water will “fill-up” the intracoastal via the inlet so the current will head north and south of the inlet.
