Extra information

Rules
None

No rules or restrictions here, free water, free ride. Just respect other riders or the local school when teaching. Don't cut in ahead of boats heading back to Crandon marina as the channel passes. But enough room for everybody. Don't litter from your boat. Be careful at low tide, when anchoring.

Nightlife

Great nightlife in Miami Beach and Miami.
