Where to sail on Fla''''s East Coast...

You want to look at elliot key. biscayne bay. (s miami area)

you can run up from KW using hawks channel, or go off shore. enter to bay thru angelfish creek, or cesars creek. (angelfish is easier).

pick up frank pappys crusing guide to the keys.

elliot key is national park, and on inside. its about 3 miles (due west) to black point marina for supplies ("Mount Trash-more" is an easy visual reference.

a little south is homstead marina, or go south thru card sound bridge to barnes sound. (back towards keys).

going north, you can hit coconut grove, or south beach. (both have public marinas).

so, within a days sail you has peace and quite at elliot, supplies due west at marinas, or north to grove and miami beach (or miami-marina).

also worth checking out is key biscayne. (marine stadium is good mooring field).

-this is a great area to spend a week, and you can run offshore and back for day sails. you could even cross to bimini /gun cay.

get charts of south miami area to key largo.

only question.....what do you draw

over 6'' you have to be careful....

drop a line w/ any questions.
