Great photo opportunities along the waterway are to be had. Bird-watching is easy as birds are everywhere and of too many to list. Look for crabs, snails, mussels, chitons, and man-o-war jellyfish.
Beach play and Kayaking makes me happy. You have a new life back with open dreams. Island life is a good thing for stress release. Having two arms, two legs, and two eyes is good news, which makes me happy big-time.
Being alive and with no major issues yet is pure joy and at a primetime Beach Park! Focus on that, even if the yellowtail were not biting and the engine just died eight miles off Big Pine Key. Never panic, even in a boat going down. Calm and rational at all times in life, always. Master never getting mad and this beach park is perfect!
There are certain places on the islands that we must do over and over again. Thank goodness the Marathon Information Center hooked us up the first visit we came down. I always recommend people to stop and get some free brochures, and always ask about the best outdoor parks just like this one.
The creek itself is really popular for the Kayak Launch which takes you right into Boot Key Harbor. Everybody likes exploring The Beaches of the Keys and this is a top pick. It's always busy and the kind of place you will return to what you have seen all the offerings. There's plenty of room for picnics, with barbecue grills, outdoor showers, white sandy Volleyball Courts, and really good snorkeling off the shore.
This location makes a great stop in the Middle Florida Keys for people that are looking just to take a break and enjoy a little nature in the water. We really have come to respect the entire zone as Vacations to Marathon Florida Keys are top-notch and equally as impressive as mile marker zero. I would stop at Pigeon Key on the way down and of course the Paddle Park Curry Hammock is outstanding.
