U.S. 1 links the largest of the Lower Keys, which string together to make up the Atlantic coast of the Florida Keys. A string of smaller barrier islands, running roughly parallel to the highway and about 5 miles to the north, makes up the Gulf of Mexico coastline. The paddling route for this trip circles out to these barrier islands, extending beyond Snipe Key and the Mud Keys onto the open Gulf before returning via a stepping-stone route to the start. The waters between the Atlantic and the Gulf keys is shallow, and this whole journey can be completed without paddling over water more than 3 or 4 feet deep. In theory you could walk it! Be sure to take polarized sunglasses so you get a good view of the fish, sponges, and jellyfish beneath you, or a mask so you can hold onto another kayak for support as you dip your face into the warm water for an even better view. The mangrove islands on this route are roosting places for herons, egrets, and pelicans, and the outer islands have sandy beaches and offshore coral heads in water clear as glass. Watch for egrets and ibis flocking to their roosting grounds in the evening.
