Not much wind then and lots of T-Storms. Put in at KW and then sail out to the lighthouse (Sand Key) to go snorkelling.
Maybe put in at Bahia Honda State PArk and sail about there and go out to Leou (sp?) Key for snorkelling. Bahia Honda has a good anchorage and a ramp.
There is a KOA near Key West with a good ramp and nice facilities you could use to launch.
Bring a fan cuz it will be hot. Bring screens too cuz there's bugs. Get a bimini and lots of sunscreen, you'll need them.
