Isla Mujeres to Ft. Meyers

Made your intended trip in reverse...Isla Mujeres is nice spot having anchorage or marinas...Gulf Stream can be challenge, pick weather carefully, I think it was a 64 hr. motor from Isla Merjeres to Dry Tortugas. Isla Mujeres great overnight stop but don't go in at night as we did as it was most difficult to find anchorage, have great trip...Dave

What dates are you thinking? I'm always looking for a reason to spend nights on the water. I sail a Hunter 40.5, could be a good match. Either way, you gotta take a few days and enjoy Fort Jefferson. Last time I was down there I think it was only about 280 miles to Cancun from the Fort.

bobwebster Crossing the Yucatan Channel (Cuba to Isla Mujeres) there is a fair current, seems like 2-4 knots if I remember correctly. I think you're supposed to stay 12 miles off Cuba unless you clear in at a port of entry.

Freesail99 A friend of mine made the trip from Fort Meyers to Isla Mujeres. He buddy boated and said for the first couple of times, he wouldn't do it any other way. Good Luck. I understand Isla Mujeres is a very nice place to visit.

If you have any fishing gear on board be sure to buy a permit when you get there. Even having a hook on board can get you a huge fine or a seizure of your boat.

Cruising from Key West to Isla Mujeres

I am planning to make a trip to Isla Mujeres by the end of this year on my Tartan 34C, has anyone have done this trip? how difficult is it?
Is anyone interested to come along?
