Nearby Caesar’s Creek has a very swift current at times. A paddler could possibly be swept out into the Atlantic at peak outgoing tide.
Further south, there is a maze of mangrove islands and channels . The water is crystal clear and we stopped at a patch of white sandy bottom and snorkeled a little. Saw a shark and a big ray. We found Johnson’s Lagoon and Hurricane Creek. It would be difficult to get lost in this area because everything either dead ends or connects. If you go, explore all you want, then just head back east or north to Adams Key.
Sandwich Cove is immediately north of Adams Key. We paddled across it (into the wind) the first time, then paddled inside, hugging the mangrove shoreline on the return trip. There were cormorants, kingfishers, and egrets flying about, fishing, and sunning themselves.
The reaming miles of the return trip to Elliott Key were quiet and calm in the clear green-blue water and the kayaks glided across the smooth surface.
