Tampa to Key West

I'll be taking my 30' power boat from Tampa to Key West in a couple months. Does anyone know a good 1/2 way point to stop at? Also any advice on what areas to stay away from or the best way to navigate into Key West Harbor?

Re: Tampa to Key West

If your staying onboard, Id stay in Cayo Costa/ Pelican bay, great day stop safe and protected, dont think theres power at the slip but a great beautiful place. In KW make sure to stay within the markers at the NW channel entrance to avoid shoals. Are you staying in a marina in KW or on the hook?

Re: Tampa to Key West

If you anchor off Shark River, stay well a way from the shore. Between the skeeters and the HUGE black flies, I thought we were under attack.
