Keys sailing in 45 ft CAT with 4.5 ft draft

Hi all

Going to sail from Miami to key west and back in 12-14 days, Dec 22 thru Jan 4th.

Can anyone recommend Marinas and anchorages I can get into and advice on whether to consider crossing over from Hawks Channel to the Gulf side at seven mile bridge either coming or going..seems there maybe a few better quite anchorages on the gulf side.
Experience is intermediate.

Thanks much...

You can cross there , or snake creek, or long key, or thru jewfish creek and card sound it all depends on weather and what you want to do and see. Some ok marinas, 1 with a pool and great restaraunt (lazydays) in marathon. A ton of places to anchor both sides of the keys. Kw bight, galleon, ab marina all ok marinas in key west,
