Curtis Marina (off Hawk Channel in Key Largo)

Posted by Claiborne Young | Posted on 03-16-2011

The marked channel leading to Curtis Marina cuts off the ocean/Hawk Channel north of Tavernier Key. First time entry by visitors can be tricky!

This marina is almost always full with about 20 slips, mostly live aboards. Next to Curtis is Blue Waters Marina a live aboard marina. sometimes you can get a slip there. Our draft is 4.5ft & we had no problem. Stay to your port in the deeper water before coming in the markers to the channel.

The channel can be easily traversed with over 5′ draft to either Curtis Marine or BlueWaters marina. We draw 5’3″ and have no trouble with at least 1′ above datum, (3 hours +- high tide) The shallow spot is just before the channel entrance lighted G”1″ and R”2″, stay to starbord, over toward the red to avoid a hump. Once inside the first markers the channel is very deep.
If you need to wait for the tide, the anchorage on the NW side of Tavernier Keys is excellent, with depths raging from 5 to 8 feet at low water.
