My opinion is that your Jan-Feb timeframe is some of the best times to cruise S Florida. It is typically very dry and beautiful. Our temps usually run around 60s-70s during day, and might get into the 50s at night. Pretty temperate. Avoid the Gulf Stream in a northern unless you want to get beat to death. Do watch out for cold fronts coming down, it will make the seas rough. Marathon can be rough in a blow too... so watch your weather window... but in general, it is pretty and comfortable.
If you are going to hit Marathon, make plans to go to the Dry Tortugas. They are about 70 miles west of Key West and 60 miles north of Cuba. Beautiful, beautiful place. You have to hit it during the day, so plan on making an overnight passage. You wont regret it.
Good luck and have fun with it.
