We rented a kayak from Robbie's for a 1-mile paddle. Robbie's was concerned if we had paddled before as it was a little windy. Beautiful trip at high tide. We downloaded walking tour to our phone... more »
This is a short paddle from Indian Key Fill, and the paddle itself is gorgeous. We were fortunate enough to get a tour from Brad Bertelli at the Keys History and Discovery Museum. Fascinating place... more »
Beautiful spot in the ocean to freshen up on some history. Wish the dock was fixed already. Nice walking trail. Next time I hope to go with more time to explore the shore around it.
What an amazing place! We kayaked over to the island in about 20 or 30 minutes. We walked around the island and snorkeled around the dock. The water was a bit murky but we saw a ton of fish and a lobster! This was one of the best parts of our vacation. Keep an eye out for low tide or you'll have to work your kayak all the way around to the deep water to return. The sand is super suctiony so wear good water shoes.
