2nd to 5th 30th Annual Cedar Key Small Boat Meet
The 30th Cedar Key small boat meet is usually the first full weekend in May. It is completely informal. Tides and weather are still the only organization. There are no planned events, signups, or fees.

All shallow draft boats are welcome: canoes and kayaks, catboats and catamarans; trimarans, rowboats and sailing dinghies; scows, sharpies and sampans; punts, pirogues, prams---and pirates` yawlboats.

Wildlife observers note the food chain at Cedar Key is complete in the water and ashore. The nutrients flowing out with the clean Suwannee mix with oxygenated water riffling through the cape`s islands and channels. Birds, bugs, fish, shellfish, turtles, alligators, marine mammals---all thrive.
