Great details on this trip on this webpage: Florida Rambler - Island Camping: Anclote Key Preserve

Anclote Key is a Florida State Preserve located three miles off the mainland by the city of Tarpon Springs. The island measures 3 miles long and 1/4 mile wide, making it an ideal place to explore by sea kayak.
A fine white sand beach covers the entire gulf side of the island. If you look carefully, you'll find many interesting shells and maybe even a few sand dollars. Sea turtles may be seen in the blue-green waters, particularly near the south end of the island. For the bird watcher, Anclote Key supports over 40 different species on the island, including bald eagle and osprey. Camping is permitted on the north end of Anclote, so bring a tent and sleeping bag and make the trip an overnighter.
See? She made it...;)
Looks like 3.5 miles from parking to the island. Here is a map: Map of our Paddle Path
