This place gets packed on weekends. There are boaters, kayakers, and paddle boarders along with folks visiting the aquarium next door. Fishing can be good in Owls Creek especially out near the jetty but watch out for the boat traffic. The Pirate Boat hit a Kayaker a couple of years ago !
Lots to do such as kayaking, etc BUT the creek is crowded and there are lots of boats with limited visibility. This is not the place for beginners and that is much of what is here. They don't mix well with large boats.
