Re: Sailing from Tampa to Key West

Hy Lite has given you good advise regarding the Sarasota Pass unless you have local knowledge of where it happens to be shoaling; which seems to be arbitrary. Venice would be an excellent choice but it does have a little current. I'm considering a trip from the opposite direction and Venice is my stopover point. Do try to make the passes before dark and make sure your charts are updated and you check for the notice to mariners for latest info.
