We’re based in Key Biscayne and draw 5 1/2 ft. While we certainly are cognizant of depth
, we do not feel limited or restricted. Everything from Government
cut through the Featherbeds and Sands Key is our playground on short weekends. We go into Pines Channel, No Name, Marine
Stadium and Gables By The Sea with no issues. We could use Angelfish Creek but choose not to because of the mystery spot talked about on the ocean side.
We used to love to go down to Key Largo
on the inside with our old boat
, which drew 4 1/2 feet. The trip south from Key Largo
to Channel 5 was doable but stressful on the inside because of the marginal depths.
Look for a boat
that draws 4 1/2 feet or less and is under 65’ tall if you want to get the most out of the area.
