Recommendations for Marina in Key Largo

I am looking for a recommendation for a marina in Key Largo for a 42 foot sailboat that draws 5.5 feet. I would appreciate any recommendations or notes of marinas to avoid. Thanks.

probably the only marina you will be able to get into is Pilothouse Marina.

I think you should be able to get into Marina del Mar (305 453 7171). The only problem will be the depth. I have a 5' draft and have gone in at the absolute low of a -0.2' tide, so as long as you go at times other than this you should be OK. It is a rocky bottom, so use care in choosing your time...

the only problem with most of the marinas in the Key Largo area is depth. Unless one is familiar with a specific marina substantial care should be taken in utilizing them.
