Bringing a boat to Key West? Learn about local marinas available with transient slips, mooring fields, and boatyards

The Florida Keys are surrounded by typically warm and calm waters, perfect for the recreational boater. But be forewarned  the water is very shallow! If you are not familiar with our waters and are new to boating and/or navigating, it would be better to leave the driving up to an expert. Charters of all types are available at most marinas.
