I'm thinking of taking my dinghy down to Florida for a week in late January or February and was wondering if there was anything interesting going on around that time that would be worth checking out when I'm not sailing the dinghy.

I've never taken a boat with me on a vacation so I'm really not sure how the logistics of it all would work. If there was someplace I could stay and leave the boat in the water or pull it up on a beach that would be ideal. I have a nesting dinghy that I carry in the back of my truck so I don't want to take it apart everyday and load it in my truck if possible.

Thanks for any recommendations,

Hugh

That's pretty much the height of the "season" down there and there are plenty of things to do. There are a myriad of fun parks, like Disney World and Sea World, tours through the Everglades on an airboat, fishing (fresh water, inshore and offshore) hiking tours, casino boats, trips to the Bahamas by sea and air and Indian Casinos. What you can do in Florida during the season is limited by only your imagination and pocketbook.

Take it to the inlet /intracoastal in Palm Beach - there is an underwater park just below the bridge with a snorkeling trail - you then could sail it over to Peanut Island. Drop it in at the boat ramp on Virgina Key - on your way to Key Biscayne - sail the boat over to No Name harbor , tie up and have a beer,

capta: I'm mostly looking for cheap preferably sailing related entertainment/distractions. I'm saving for a big boat so I don't want to spend too many boat bucks on this outing.

Damon: The Key Lime Sailing Club does seem like a good deal especially with the use of one of their boats. I would like to sail my own boat though.

cdy: Are those two different day sails?
