currents between Key West and Ft Jefferson?

I heard there is pretty severe currents between Key West and the Fort. Is it tidal currents? I can't find any chart information.

The loop current for the Gulf Stream can cause a pretty fair drift across the course but nothing exceptional. You can view the Gulf Stream at PassageWeather - Sailing Weather - Marine Weather Forecasts for Sailors and Adventurers

FWIW...

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
