Cabbage Key from Boca Grande Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This one- or two-day round-trip begins at Boca Grande and crosses Boca Grande Pass to Cayo Costa island. The shore here is the finest sparkling sand, extending in shallow bars and fine spits causing refracting waves that send interacting, dancing patterns of shadows across the seabed.

This is undeveloped coast where you see dolphins and diving birds but few people. Tiny brown waders cling to the breeze and run along the shore. You will see terns, black skimmers, and pelicans. It’s easy to paddle along at a distance from the shore, but it pays to stay close. Clear sapphire water edges the sand where the backwash fingers iridescent shells."
