The Florida Keys stretch for over 90 miles of mostly open water, subject to relentless wind and tide. Paddling for long distances here is for properly equipped sea kayakers only. For visitors, this is typically done in groups with an experienced guide. For less adventurous recreational kayaking, we focus on locations that usually offer some shelter from the wind. These are good places to relax, paddle, and explore some relatively calm nooks and crannies uniquely "Keys."
