30th Annual Cedar Key Small Boat Meet
May 2nd, 2014 to May 5th, 2014

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 & kayaks, catboats & catamarans; trimarans, rowboats & sailing dinghies; scows, sharpies & sampans; punts, pirogues, prams---& pirates' yawlboats.

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