We really enjoyed Marathon. We initially were going to stay two nights but tacked on one more just because we weren't ready to leave quite yet. It is obvious how cruisers can stay for an entire season in one spot. The convenience of the stores within walking distance, the inexpensive mooring and the prime jump off point to the Bahamas make it one of our favorites. Since the weather was still from the north by the 4th day and we had friends in Key West, we decided to put off the Bahamas a little while longer and keep heading down the lower keys to the southernmost point of the U.S.

|Dinghy dock at Boot Key Harbor City Marina - so well organized.|
|Mooring field in BKH. Some cruisers get their spot and call this home for a season.|
