Thanks for your question.
When paddling, you want at least a 1.1 foot tide to make it through the tunnels without having to drag your vessel. Anywhere above about a 2.5 foot tide becomes difficult as well because you're way up in the canopy of the trees.
As for dogs, no pets are allowed in County preserves.
