We rented paddleboards at Robbies and headed out to Indian Key, which took about 30 minutes to get there. On the way, get your camera ready. We saw spotted and eagle rays, bonnet head sharks, tarpon and more. Indian Key is a perfect setting for relaxing and having lunch.

One of the most unique state parks in the United States. You need to kayak over here (from Robbie's at MM76) and take an hour to walk around. You need to read every marker, or the whole experience won't make sense. But the history is so crazy, that we always leave scratching our head. You need to see this!

A short kayak trip from the beach takes you back in time. The buildings may have surrendered to the elements but you can still see remnants of the first county seat. Cisterns, roads and fruit tree groves are there to appreciate. Native flora is abundant. Bring bug spray and sunscreen.

We paddled out here with kayaks rented from Robbies. It was a short and easy paddle. We walked around viewing the remains of the village, and spent some time snorkeling and fishing. There is a ton of coral fossil around the key. Very scenic. One of our favorite parts of the trip! We even caught some barracuda.

This place is an old settlement in the keys that was burned down by the local Native Americans. Its considered a "ghost town" but there isn't much there. you can see the old reminents of a town square, homes and watchtower. Pretty neat and the snorling around the area is gorgeous. Need a canoe, kayak or shallow water boat to reach it. Most of the water there is a no motor zone.
