Part 3 of Everyone's Travel Club's kayaking adventure in Key West was really a scouting mission for future expeditions. Check out these pics from 3 great launch sites.
#1 John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park
Just an hour from Miami, this park had lots of great places, with close parking, to launch a kayak or canoe. Rentals are available but we heard from a few locals that they restrict a lot of the places you can go (if you rent that is).
Keep driving South and you'll eventually pass Bahia Honda, arguably one of the best beaches in the Keys...it's locally pronounced Bay-ah Honda...for some reason...You're looking at about 2 1/2 hours from Miami, or 45 minutes from Key West.
Picture looks like it is underwater...but it's not.
We made it! I caught a great sunset at the South end of the main drag. The next day I launched from here! Check back soon to catch the trip!
