Over 500 miles of boating with a goal of hitting some of the shipwreck trail that is shallow enough to snorkel, check out some of the lighthouses on the way down, snorkel the christ of abyss, and visit Fort Jefferson. Looking forward to it and will post about the trip when we return.
Sounds like an awesome trip, looking forward to your trip report and your experiences. This is pretty much what I had envisioned. What type/size boats are making the run?

Very good, safe plan.

I've done 16 DT trips (on a charter) and it's Jurassic Park down there with the fish!!
