Re: Miami & Keys Depth?

I would want more information before I made a recommendation. Yes, the Hawk Channel has thin spots. On the other side of the reef are boats with 40' drafts. You might have to choose your weather a little more carefully but there it is.

If you idea of sailing is going into a different marina each night for dinner then no, you most likely would not like the Keys. If it is sailing and diving there is more than enough water in Key West and lots of great sailing area and diving spots. In some of the more skinny areas you will have to pay attention to the tide but in Key West you have to anyway, the tidal currents are quite strong so you need to know what is going on.

Hope this helps
