Aboard Aeon Episode 10: Into the Open Ocean

Chris and Ivy take Aeon out into the open ocean for the first time and enjoy their first anchorage in the Florida Keys.  They learn about Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park and everything that it has to offer while moving one step closer to their new home in Key West.

No Name Harbor

We spent the night in No Name Harbor. It’s a natural harbor on Florida’s Key Biscayne. We didn’t go on land, but we saw that if you docked in the park, there was water and facilities. This anchorage is located within Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park, which covers roughly one-third of the island of Key Biscayne. It is named after Bill Baggs, who was the editor of The Miami News from 1957 until his death in 1969. He worked to keep the land from being developed and to keep some of the keys in their natural state.

The Cape Florida Light, the oldest standing structure in Greater Miami, is located in this park. A large historical marker marks the site as part of the National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom Trail, as hundreds of Black Seminoles, many of whom were fugitive slaves, escaped from here to freedom in the Bahamas.

The park has over a mile of sandy Atlantic beachfront, which is ideal for snorkeling and swimming. Boating, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, bicycling, hiking, and wildlife viewing are among the activities available. In addition to beach visits and tours of the lighthouse and keeper’s quarters. There are picnic areas and youth camping areas available. There is also a visitor center, a museum with interpretive exhibits, and concessions.
