Camping On Water: Marquesas Atoll

The Marquesas Atoll in the Florida Keys is an amazing place to camp.  Only problem, is there’s no camping on the beaches and there is no other land than the beaches.  So we spent some time here “camped” in our 37′ sailboat, s/v Winterlude.

The atoll is more than an ideal star gazing location … much more! From abandoned Cuban refugee boats … and refugees washing ashore … to dinghy snorkeling … to being strafed by the US Navy F-16 fighter jets….Click the link below to read about our adventure.    Or if you want to follow our camping on water adventures, visit commuterCRUISER.com for the latest updates.

Ashore in our "family car", the dinghy - look closely, you can see the boat anchored on the horizon in the middle of the photo.

  1. The Navy does not have F16s

    • OK, so F18s or whatever the Navy is training on out of Key West Naval Air Station, Boca Chica. I do know that when they use your anchored boat as pretend targets and go zooming vertical that you’re so caught aback that you have NO idea of what just happened! They have P-3’s and P-5’s as well as other training aircraft and I guess F-18’s. So sorry! Cheers! Jan
