5-6 knots you can leave marco go around Romano shoals, bee line it to shark river entry anchor
there.50 miles or so. Follow the edge of the boundary on the inside for the everglades you should have enough water
, and there are no traps. Go straight to 7 mile bridge. Anchor
outside boot key or go in and grab a mooring
. Next day head offshore
do an overnight and your in Miami
. Or take two days pushing it, leave early anchor one night Tavernier key the next should get you to where you are going.

This is a good itinerary.
As an alternative, you can save ~20nm if you bypass Marathon and head
for Channel 5 from Little Shark. Leave LS and round the cape, then head for 24 46.74N x 081 00.50W. This will put in the ICW
to Channel 5 bridge (be sure to stay in the ICW
channel, there are some shallows spots). If you are able to make Rodriquez from LS (~77nm) it would set you up for an easy next day.
As you round the cape inside the National Park, pay attention to the charted park markers, it's been reported some have rusted off at the waterline creating a huge hazard. Give them plenty of room whether you see them or not.
So, Marco to Little Shark, Little Shark to Rodriquez, Rodriquez to Miami
, all daylight passages.
