4 destinations... maps, photos, first-hand reports

Strung out between the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico, the Florida Keys offer varied padding from short day trips to multi-day trips along the Overseas Paddling Trail. With many shallow areas and outfitters aplenty, this is a paddler's paradise. Whether ocean kayaking, or exploring the nooks and crannies of the Gulf coast, The Florida Keys meet varied paddling preferences. October to March is the best time to avoid the heat, bugs, and threat of hurricanes. Accommodations, restaurants and shopping are readily accessible in most areas.
