Tidal currents through Bear Cut can reach up to 3 knots which can make it difficult to paddle against with a head wind in a kayak.
Conditions can vary dramatically depending on which side of the bridge you're in, especially if there is a strong east wind which will be building up waves on the sandbar just off shore during the ebbing tide.
The low tide will expose several rocks and an ancient reef just north of Key Biscayne. If you are not careful, this may be one of the few areas in Miami you might scrape your boat hull on a rock. Be careful.
On sunny days this area can be crowded with pleasure craft, though not to the same level as the Nixon Sandbar in the bay side further south.
