Aerial images look like it's not all no/slow wake, but including the slower area plus running at quick cruise speed (~30-40mph) is it about a 45 min-1 hr trip? How about just to the river?

Thanks.

Just asked an A.C. resident, 20-25min
The river is a few minutes less. Lox River goes out to the inlet
Some nice restaurants by boat right on the inlet as well.

That section of the ICW is all go fast up to the Indiantown Bridge, then no wake to just inside the inlet. I would be stunned if you couldn't get into the ocean from AC entrance in 15 minutes. Worst part of AC is the fact you can only motor out one canal to the ICW, lots of connecting canals but they are roped off forcing you to use one main waterway.

Thanks. What canals in the AC development are roped off? The aerial map looks like there's 4 main exits into the ICW (all fed by various inner canals), at the tip/edge of Regatta, Spyglass, Commodore (both ends of Commodore) & Palmwood.

[Edit, nevermind, I zoomed in closer and now see what you're referring to. That's ridiculous! Why on earth do they do that? The one at Palmwood looks like it has to have a slot to go through, as that lower section doesn't connect with the middle/upper.]

The only one that is usable is the one closest to the AC marina. The Palmwood canal is separate from the rest and the rest are roped off due to security (prevents outside boats from entering). They are actually steel cables if I remember correctly. Also consider some of the west side of AC are restricted by bridges so while it appears wide open waterfront, zoom to the size of the boats to give you an idea of how big of a boat can get back there.
