    Camping+ my waverunner!!!

    Hey guys just checking in and i have. Een doing a lot of research for the past week and maybe someone here can help me. I'm kind of getting used to the same sights over and over so i want to try to find a camping site/island around south florida where i can just beach or dock my ski and camp there all night. I have checked all over the keys and it seems my only options are to head way south basically starting from islamorada. I really would like to put the ski in the water at the parrot jungle marina then head south and beach the ski or dock it and camp then return home the following day. Has anyone here tried or has done this sort of adventure? If so can some light be shed on this matter? I'm asking because trailering the ski all the way to the key kind of defeats the long trip enjoyment on the actual ski... Feel free to give me ideas and or spots i can go to. Thanks in advance...

    I've never tried doing a camping trip like that in the keys & can't suggest any spots, but you should be aware jetskis are not allowed to use the ICW where it crosses through Biscatne National Park. You'll have to travel a couple miles offshore to go around the park, so it might be a better idea to launch out of Largo.

    Not as exciting as the keys, but we've camped at Peanut Island in West Palm with the skis. There are boat slips to tie up in on a first come first serve basis, & they have a water taxi to bring your gear over if you don't want to haul it all over with the skis.

    I would check in the Florida section of the forums, I know that Julio posted about riding down in the keys if memory serves. Or maybe soflariders.net

    Thanks! Yea i have been doing a lot of reading on the ICW and pwc rules ( totally ridiculous btw). I just thought someone might know of a certain spot or what not. Worse comes to worse i would have to drive down there and launch it...... Stupid hippies. Btw i just joined the movement to lift the ban on the ICW...

    Since getting my waverunners, I have thought about doing something similar. I would love to put in on the Miss. river and travel down stream to St. Louis, camping along the way. I think it would be a blast!
