Recommend a Florida Keys cruising guide

We are relocating our 50' Gibson from West Palm Beach down to our new home dock in Key Largo in the next couple of weeks.

Can anyone recommend a really good cruising / boating guide to the Keys, particularly the upper keys?

Re: Recommend a Florida Keys cruising guide

Hi, since no one has answered yet, I'll tell you that there are a lot of threads on this subject and you will get quite a bit from the search function using "florida keys cruising guide." I just received Frank Papy's "Cruising Guide to the Florida Keys," which on first read is very informative and nicely done.

Good Luck! We will be cruising our F28R down there at the end of March.

The guide books are OK but now the best cruising guide/information IMHO is the interactive guide in the Internet at activecaptain.com with info and reviews submitted by cruisers themselves.

THanks to all.

I've been an ActiveCaptain user since almost the beginning.

I ordered Papy's manual from Amazon..
