Florida Bay is just below the southern tip of Florida and is the where the Atlantic ocean meets the Gulf of Mexico. Where the mainland ends and the water begins is a beautiful and calm waterway between the Everglades National Park and many islands of various sizes that stretch from the Keys westward to Everglades City on the far Western shore. There are thousands of islands just off the coast. Once these islands were home to drug runners and escape convicts. Now, these islands are available for many sporting uses including overnight camping and fishing. It’s not uncommon to see pontoon boats, kayaks or other boats ferrying weekend parties to their fishing sport or entertainment location.

On a rainy day you can see all kinds of boats off the beach and they have an eerie look against the gray rain filled sky.
