Can anyone give me an estimated drive time from Monkey River to Punta Gorda? How are the road conditions right now?
About 2 - 2.5 hours. The road from M River to the highway is not that long but not paved and therefore not quick to drive. You could do this a bit faster but this is a realistic time frame.
Consider asking around the village to see if one of the captains is heading that way by boat. It is a gorgeous ride and if they are already going you may be able to simply chip in for gas.
