Florida Keys Ideas

Make sure you do the Booze Cruise. What a fantastic thing to do here, maybe the best activity going in the Florida Keys. We laugh and call it the Booze Cruise since you get free margaritas, beer or whatever! It is so much about nature, fun, super views and music. On this trip we found a really good place to eat that we would like to share called cafe Bagatelle. Every day is different up here, as this was our third time eating up with the second floor views. The restaurant is one of the prime spots to hit for quality dishes of all types. There's no way you can come on vacation to this talent out get in a photograph at the Southernmost Point. It is one of the Coolest Places in Key West because of the people. Everyone loves to get a photograph or video taken here, it has a great vibe all day long. If you want to try something a little more adventuresome go for the Big Pine Kayak Adventures. Don't miss a true Florida Keys thrill, one you will not forget. Your guided back-country tour takes you to places of amazing beauty. It is pure joy, you paddle with all sorts of nature including frolicking bottlenose dolphin!

Lower Keys

Geiger key as many times as I've been to the keys, I always seem to bypass geiger key in my rush to get to Key West. The campground is located in an open area behind the motel. The launch is ideal for Kayaks and small boats. The paddling opportunities are endless, and so are the Fishing hot spots.

Go all the way to the end of long beach road for another access point from a sandy beach on the ocean side. At the end of the road, there is another launch. For starters, there are fewer visitors here, other than key west-bound island hoppers along the Overseas Highway. We did paddle around in a ravishing setting of islands, bays and lagoons.

We tried the namesake killer Hogfish sandwich and the quiznos.com subs, and it was to die for. There are several launch spots here for ocean Kayaking behind the naval air station on boca chica key. There are plenty of things to do on mightily-big pine and the lower keys. Both snorkel and dive equipment rentals available.

You can always strap your Snorkel Gear to your kayak and snorkel anywhere you like. As you might expect, the Fishing here is very good, as well. The launch is a bit muddy here, but it gets you on the ocean faster and its close to the patch reefs. The preeminent way to see the lower keys may be under water.

There is so much more to the lower keys besides Key West. Get off the highway and find your lost paradise. Paddle around the islands and lagoons to view rare wading birds, snorkel the near-shore patch reefs.
