Geiger Key is located just south of Big Coppit Key. Like No Name Key, it is not on the Overseas Highway, so it is a little more remote.
This was the second time I've kayaked Geiger Key with my sister. The first time we went into a channel that goes under the bridge linking Geiger to Big Coppitt. Into a lake like area on the back side of the Boca Chica Naval Air Station. This time, three kayakers were coming out, on an outgoing tide. Monica said, why don't we just paddle along the shore.
We came to the channel above, and turned around.
We were on the Ocean, but because of the reef, no big waves.
Landed at 12:50. A short, 95 minute paddle.
Stopped at the Geiger Key Marina for lunch. Gotta love the sense of humor.
I thought this was a ziploc bag. A man-of -war
Monica thought my camera would not get the mangrove snapper just off the deck. She was right. But it did pick up the sheepshead, which I had not even noticed.
The Marina has kayak rentals. The launch is a cut in the concrete seawall. I would not want to launch here. Push off a steep, narrow, concrete ramp. No margin for error. Deep water if you tip. But, if you don't know someone with oceanfront property.....
I've read there is a place off the road where you can launch. Where it is, I don't know.
