All shallow draft boats are welcome: poled punts, paddled pirogues & rowed pirates’ gigs; catboats & catamarans; trimarans & proas; sampans, sharpies & scows, & duckboats & dinghies.
Cedar Key is known for its thriving food chain ashore & in the water. Two National Wildlife Refuges are here—Cedar Keys NWR & the Lower Suwannee NWR. Among Cedar Keys’ saltmarshes, & inshore & offshore islands, fishing, birding, bug, tide & weather observing are superb. ~Hugh Horton
