West Content Keys Wildlife Management Area

Map of West Content Keys Wildlife Management Area

The West Content Keys lie approximately 25 miles northwest of Marathon, north of Little Crane Key. These islands, west of Content Passage, are accessible at high tides. Broad, shallow tidal creeks dissect the area, and nesting ospreys (Pandion haliaetus) and wading birds inhabit the islands.

Idle-speed only/no wake zones are established in selected tidal creeks, and a no-access buffer zone in one cove.

Special regulations apply here. Learn more about what activities are allowed in this type of zone.

A summary of all sanctuary regulations is available online. For the full text of sanctuary regulations, see 15 CFR 922 Subpart P.
