    The Keys

    Hey guys,

    Anyone ride in the Keys? I am taking the boat down in 2 weeks. We are staying on Duck Key and plan to cruise the area, snorkle, and get some sun. They say its 60 miles to key west. Not sure if I am going to make that trip by water or not.

    Is there anything that I must see by boat down there? I am ordering my Charts for my garmin so I don't rip the bottom off my boat!

    Thanks,

    Joe

    The Keys are the only place I've ridden. Did 90 miles today. I mainly ride north of MM 79. Go to some of the reefs and snorkel. Definitely get your charts, lots of shallow spots here. If you want to see Key West drive there, quicker, cheaper and you'll be able to do more.

    Middle Keys are fun to ride but Key West is better by car.

    Cool! I can't wait. Thanks for the tip on not going by boat to the keys. I dont want to be stressed out. I need to find the good reefs and sandbars. How are the water cops down there?

    Thanks,

    Joe

    ok sorry for the late chime in
    any area is great for the boat -just tow, launch,ride EACH AREA
    john penny- in the upper keys
    duck key great place for middle stuff -great island -lots of fish ,brigdes,2 good bars
    key west -stop by a jetski tour and ask them for 100 bucks to let you join the tour (you are loking for the submarine trench)your boat/gas -they make money - a 100 bucks is nothing compared to getting lost or stuck(sea tow)
    hit me on pm when you get to duck key
    have fun

    I was going to start a thread at some point in time, but since my topic is similar to this one, I am going to join in. I am looking at flying down from Canada with my wife and two other couples on December 27th for three nights. We won't have any jetskis with us, but we are wondering what the temperature would be like and recommendations for places to stay and things to do. We are basically trying to get away from the cold and the kids. We also have a few other locations in mind(Las Vegas, Mexico) and are going to book last minute for a deal.
