We kayaked out to the park, fun to explore and learn about the history of the island. I would go back and see it again.
The reason we have 4 stars here is because this Key (Cay, but both are pronounced the same) is only accessible by water and the DOCK could use some work. Be careful when you select your spot to tie up. Some of the ladders (the dock is 6/8' above the water) have missing rungs or are in rough shape from... 更多
We dropped in to waste some time and get some exercise in. Although it was very hot we had fun walking the trail in both directions. We even found two rangers working who helped us identify some trees we had seen earlier in the day. They stopped their work and very happily pulled information up on their phones and showed... 更多
Access mostly by kayak or canoe, this island is a must see for anyone visiting the Keys. It can be accessed on the south side of the island by boat, or on the west and north sides by kayak or canoe. Located near Robbie's Marina in Islamorada. A lot of history here.
We rented kayaks at Robbie's for an easy and short paddle out to Indian Key. We had a great time checking out the underwater plants on the ocean floor that is not far beneath the boats on this shallow ride. Make sure to wear polarized sun glasses so that you can see as much as possible under the water as... 更多
I would highly recommend going to the island for anyone visiting the keys. Our family enjoyed learning some of the history and seeing the wildlife on the island. Our tour guide, David, from Islander Watersports dug up hermit crabs for our kids to play with and even climbed a tree so we could try a cuban spice straight from the... 更多
This is a pretty easy paddle from Robbie’s/Kayak Shack. I ordered a book from the Matecumbe Historical Trust online, but you could stop in and pick it up if you are interested (located on Islamorada.) It’s maybe 70-80 pages and a quick read. It is packed full of information and tells a very interesting history of Indian Key. It also... 更多
This was once the county seat for Dade (now referred to as Miami-Dade) county. A fascinating history. Accessible by boat, favored by kayakers especially. There are pamphlets available at the dock which will give you the history of the key. Ruins are marked so if you follow the map, you will see where everything was when this was an active... 更多
This is an island that you can get to by boat or kayak. It is a historical site but doesn't have much on it. There are a couple of benches to sit on and an old wooden observational tower. Some of the, used to be buildings, are mapped out by rocks or wood. If you like to see a piece... 更多
