mgiguere We anchored in Boot Key on our way back from Key West to Islmorada over Super Bowl weekend. Found a quiet spot in the mangroves on a creek off to the right off the main channel where you showed the restaurant/fuel stop in your photos. Excellent trip.

Depends on the marina. I have had both. Most charge on the stated length (within reason). Others, like many in Key West, will hit you from the tip of the anchor to the end of the davits. Always best to ask up front (before arriving).

travlineasy Sounds like you're having a great time, Mario. Keep us old codgers in the frozen north posted about how things are going.

BTW: Are you going to head farther southwest, Key West, Dry Tortugas? Lots of neat things down there to see and do as well.

Keep in touch,

Gary

MarioG Nice write up CD

We are setting here at Marathon now and what a great place to be. I would say there has to be near 300 boats here and whats great is we have meet up with some we meet at other anchorages on the way down. I think we will stay here and just catch the $3 bus to Key West to check it out.

We ellected just to hang out in the anchorage area to save a little $$ because the only differance we see with getting a moring ball other then the cost would be just a little closer to the dinghy dock, (yes I'm still rowing ,which is good concidering all the good food that can be had here)

We had a great time getting here comming down Hawk channel, nothing beats the sun rises of the Atlantic and there are great protected anchorages along the way from Miami.
