Approximately 7.5 miles West-Northwest of Key Largo, Florida the northern most Key in the chain of islands linking South Florida with Key West is a beautiful island called Nest Key. Nest Key is positioned within the Florida Bay and amidst the boundary of Everglades National Park.
Hop our custom made Carolina Skiff as we cross the warm, shallow crystal clear waters of the Florida Bay where wildlife abounds in the cooler months. The winter migration of birds is a big attraction to this area as well as the river of grass to the North and other South Florida wetlands. I can virtually guaranty the presence of Pelicans white and brown, Herons, Egrets, Ospreys, Roseate Spoonbills and maybe a Bald Eagle. If your really lucky you may get to see a stray Pink Flamingo foraging for a meal. The opportunity to see stingrays and small sharks as they feed on crabs and fish in the shallow grass flats exist. A fisherman’s paradise awaits you, Permit, Redfish, Snook, Seatrout and Tarpon are the sought after game in these waters. Barracuda will keep a watchful eye while you silently skim by. South Florida is the Winter home of the endangered West Indian Manatee (Sea cow) that congregate here from the cooler waters of the North and will likely meet your acquaintance. Make sure you keep a eye out for bottle nose dolphins who love the waters of the Florida Bay and travel in groups.
You won’t want to forget your camera on this trip as the wildlife and scenery beckons for your photographic attention.
