Key West - Islands in the Stream
The Florida Keys begin in our backyard and extend for over 125 miles like a string of pearls against an emerald sea, known for its spectacular coral reefs, excellent marina facilities and quiet restful anchorages. Often called "America's Caribbean Islands" the Keys are sheltered by the only living coral reef in the U.S., offering splendid sailing conditions year round. Enjoy the delicious tropical climate, yet tempered by ocean breezes. At the "southernmost" end, you have the historic seafaring town of Key West, laid-back and friendly.
Key Largo Harbor Marina
Key Largo Harbor is the commercial maritime center for most of the boats and activities in and out of Pennekamp State Coral Reef Park. There are 2 marinas - Key Largo Harbor Marina and Marina Del Mar at the Holiday Inn. Several Dive Shop operators run regular tours from the Harbor. The channel is quite busy, so it is wise to have your VHF on ch 16 while you transit in and out of the canal system. Most boats announce their arrival or departure into the narrow entrance as well as any approach to the blind corner know as "Crash Corner".
ASA SAILING COURSES
Vacation and learn to sail at the same time one a fun-filled week of cruising the Florida Keys or Bahamas under the friendly guidance of your own U.S. Coast Guard licensed sailing instructor. You'll learn the difference between a sheet and a halyard, practice basic navigation among a chain of glittering islands, review anchoring techniques as you stop mid-day to explore an undersea coral garden, master docking at a fine marina for dinner and dancing, and maybe even touch on celestial navigation as you stargaze from your boat, anchored in a moonlit cove.
