Snipe Keys are a group of small islands 16 miles northeast of Key West, just east of Mud Keys.
Terns, shorebirds, and little blue herons use Snipe Keys, which are protected by idle-speed only/no-wake zones in the main tidal creek and no-motor zones for the remainder of the creeks.
Special regulations apply here. Learn more about what activities are allowed in this type of zone.
