Long Term in Largo

I'm thinking of running down to the Keys for the next few months, probably Key Largo. Looking for any suggestions on good anchorages with shore access. Finding plenty of places to drop the hook on Active Captain, but not a ton of info on dinghy...or err kayak access.

Re: Long Term in Largo

Gulfside Key Largo - Buttonwood Sound has areas to drop your hook and dingy access to Key Largo just inboard of the ICW. Only problem you may have is draft, but if you're under 5', no problem. They don't have any dingy docks, but if you tie-up to the Cafe Largo pier, go in, have a beer and ask the bartender(s) what is available they can tell you. Many liveaboards tie up their dingys near the old Snooks Bar and Grill (it burned down two years ago....).
Oceanside Key Largo has a great anchor area with depth and some protection inboard of Rodriguez Key and you can simply pull your dingy up on the rocks next to the Ocean Reef Marina entrance ( that's where everyone else anchored off goes). No charge for it and I've never heard of anyone messing with anything.

Have a great trip!
