Where We Paddled and What We Saw
Paddling south from the beaches of Cedar Key, Snake Key is the second closest large island about 3 miles away.
We paddled south along the inlets and beaches on the east side of Atsena Otie Key and continued across almost 2 miles of open water to Snake Key.
Dolphins swam near us to investigate our group of three kayakers.
As we approached the island, the bottom varied in color from light green sand to darker areas until we approached the shallow incline of the sand beach.
There is a gorgeous sand beach on the north side of Snake Key at:
GPS: N 29.09899 W 083.03266 degrees (actual )
But paddlers should beware of landing on many other beaches and "sand bars" with sharp clam shells that can scratch a kayak or canoe or worse; cut feet.
Kayaking back, we paddled north around the west side of Atsena Otie Key and east across the town of Cedar Key's waterfront back to the beach entry point.
