The waters on the Gulf of Mexico, The Keys, and inshore waterways can be shallow, so knowing your depth is very important to avoid grounding. The coastal waters of the Gulf and The Keys have little structure, so the sandy substrate is constantly shifted around.
The Boating and Angling Guides by FCC are a great resource consisting of area waterway maps and include information on speed zones, marinas and public access boat ramps, and seagrass and mangrove locations. Get your Guide at the Florida Fish & Wildlife website or pick one up locally.
