Bradenton, FL newbie

Hi all. New here wanted to introduce myself. I own a water sports company on Anna Maria island. My slice of sanity is a 28.5 morgan out island.. "Sea Fever".
I'm Planning to cruise to the keys this fall/winter weather permitting. From sarasota bay any advice? Ill be with my wife so I'd like to stay within 3-5 miles of land. This will be our first cruise of any real distance. We draw3.5 and height of 45 ft. Thanks everyone!

Plan one night in Cayo Costa and a night in Ft Myers Beach! Both good anchorages with easy access from the Gulf
