Cruising Guide for Fl. Keys

I tried a search but no luck. I am looking for the latest and greatest cruising guide for the keys.
Thinking of doing the keys rather than the Exumas. Any any input is certainly invited

Re: Cruising Guide for Fl. Keys

Lots of changes in the Exumas this year, Denny. Just heard they're putting a septic tank in at Volleyball beach. And Queens Dock is getting a house built there. The ARG people burned up the picnic tables.

As far as the keys go try Frank Papys
Cruising Guide Florida Keys, Bahamas Cruising Guide, Frank Papy

I have his but it's a 1990 version. Haven't been there since 1990 and then I only got as far as Key Largo.

Re: Cruising Guide for Fl. Keys

I used Capt. Papy's guide too. I don't know if any of the Keys guides have been updated in a while, except the Waterway Guide Southern Edition (updated each year -- current edition is 2014:, but the Keys is just 2 of the 22 chapters (it covers the whole Atlantic coast of Florida, plus the Gulf coast of FL all the way to Brownsville TX). Hope this helps...happy cruising!

Re: Cruising Guide for Fl. Keys

We used (past 2 years) the Dozier's Guide mostly as a reading material. However, Active Captain might be the best option. It works well on Ipad and almost any Android device. Good luck and have fun!
