A group of islands that are located at junction of the two mighty bodies of water namely the Atlantic Ocean as well as the Gulf of Mexico; Florida Keys do present very idyllic and a varied playground for thousands of paddlers of all the stripes. It is situated at southernmost tip of the United States of America. The archipelago has more than one thousand seven hundred islands which trace a very elegant arc from the just outside of the Miami all way to the Key West, and small distances between each of the individual keys do make all of them perfect and ideal for the day trips as well as the back-country tours. The Key West kayaking tours are loved by many travellers.
When coming to the route; the amazing paddling terrain of Florida keys is remarkably much varied – as some of the routes take the paddlers through highly dense and overhanging tunnels of mangrove which is reminiscent of scene from the Raiders of Lost Ark. The appreciated appeal of the other keys, in the meantime, lies in the sparse beauty. Most of them are little more than the single sandy settlement in the gin-blue water. Available florida keys kayak rentals helps people to explore more.
For more skilled paddlers, the Curry Hammock State Park key to the Molasses Key is very popular. The fifteen mile that is the twenty three kilometres offers many places to have rest such as the lazy Sombrero Beach in the Marathon as well as the labyrinth of the mangrove tunnels of the Boot Key. Many multi-day tour trips are also been catered to via a network of the waterfront hotels, the campgrounds and shuttle services provided by the kayak rental firms. Main route from the John Pennekamp State Park to the Key Largo and then to Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park in the Key West takes in one hundred and eleven miles of the meandering coastline is populated by the manatees over simple ten day paddle.
There are several historic bridges and many remote sandy islands. The sailing kayak can be preferred for ease and the serenity of downwind passage. Kayaks that are rigged for the fishing will add an element of more adventure. The open kayak with no enclosed decks is best option for the beginners because it is easily righted in case if it is overturned. They are really fun and not fast. It is the best suited to the mangroves and the sheltered waters as height make those much more susceptible of being blown off the course. The more experienced kayakers and the people who are looking for the longer routes will favor the ocean-going kayak with the sleek with the fast hulls as well as the watertight bulkheads for the food and the scamping gear.
The perfect time to visit Florida keys is winter – the month of October to March during warm weather. During that time, the bugs that are maddening but vital for ecosystem will be less in number.
