This was a really nice surprise for our trip. We rented kayaks from the Kayak Shack, and embarked on the 20-30 paddle to the island. I had no idea what to expect.
The island is a historic site that has a lot of history. Throughout the island you will find information plaques that explain what went on in each specific site. There are even remnants of old houses from the village that used to exist. One of the coolest things is the observation tower that lets you see above the trees and offers an amazing 360 view of the Keys.
It was really cool to envision what life was like for the village on the Keys. We saw very few other people. We climbed over some rocks and took a dip in the Atlantic, where we saw lots of tropical fish and lobster. The rocks are very jagged so be careful if you attempt to climb.
This site is also an archaeological site, so you cannot take anything from the island with you. This is a great trip to an important part of Keys history. Be careful of the shallow water when the tide is low, or else you may get stuck. We were recommended to use the boat channel on the return, which allowed for smooth sailing...er...kayaking.
