Indian Key Pass Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Indian Key Pass is a direct, well-marked passage from Everglades City to the Gulf of Mexico, cutting through mangrove islands, shell mounds, and spoil banks deposited as the channel was dredged. This paddle offers you the opportunity to explore the mangrove habitat and the variety of life that inhabits these waters from the bay to the Gulf. You will also have the experience of camping on the beach on the Gulf of Mexico on Picnic, Tiger, or Camp Lulu Key. (Just remember that reservations must be made in person at the Gulf Coast VC within 24 hours of launch for all backcountry camping. However, as Camp Lulu Key is outside the park’s boundaries, you do not need a reservation to camp there.)"
