I have made this an annual event. I kayaked the Keys in 2011 with Paddle Florida and was so awed by the Keys, I want to go back again in Feburary. While it still seems like winter in North Florida, the Keys is like early summer. 80's during the days and 60's at night. I want to see how much interest there is and find a suitable lodging. I chose Key Largo as the paddling is more diverse and rentals are the least expensive in the Keys. We can do day trips to anywhere in the Keys for kayaking, snorkeling, hiking, biking or sightseeing. From the research I have done, camping is not an option. All the State Parks are booked by the snowbirds and the private campground reviews say they are cramped, hot (no shade) and noisy. I have found many options from rental homes, resorts and motels. This is for a full week, Saturday to Saturday, and if you wish to join us for a shorter stay, that is your choice. We can all get together and do paddles, bike ride, sight see and hike.
