in mid June we'll be taking our boat from the Tampa area, down thru the keys at Marathon and up the east coast
- probably stopping in Canaveral or area (got to spend a day at the space port with the kids!); before pushing on for points North.
We're hoping to stop somewhere overnight near Marathon or in that area in general to get a little snorkeling in first, maybe an overnight to allow folks to acclimatize to movement aboard; then on to Canaveral area.
I'm looking for advice/cautions/suggestions on both locations (where is good to stop? where should we avoid and why?) and any info that would be helpful along the way.
My wife and I are experienced cruisers, but we have not cruised this area before. She's a US citizen, rest of us are Canadian. We'll have 3 kids
(twins 9 and a 5 yr old) aboard with us. Boat is 47' cutter
, 6' draft
, 59' air draft
Thanks in advance!
