To start, if you are going by Kayak then you have a nice long paddle ahead of you depending on where you put in. Most people put in at the Causeway and brave the treacherous waters of Hurricane pass. Here you will dodge idiot boaters...More

Should have spent the whole visit on the beach at Honeymoon Island State Park. Took the "ferry" over to Caladesi State Park on the recommendation by the lady in the ticket sales booth. The 20 minute boat ride was nice on a long pontoon boat....More

These is an area on Honeymoon Is near the dog beach that is very close to the other Island However, the area is really deep and they said the currents are strong. If you have kayaks it is possible.
