Lots to do at EK, including taking the dinghy to Boca Chita as well as hiking around EK. Another fun stop is anchoring off the north side of Pumpkin Key and taking the dink over to explore Ocean Reef. I found going out Angelfish Creek much easier if going on out side.
Somewhere on here is a whole list of anchorages I put together for the Keys. Next would be Tarpon Basin with a formal dinghy dock and walking distance to Publix and KMart. Next, Personally,we definitely prefer the bight off Lorelei's southeast of Steamboat Channel; a little deeper, more options, and more places to take the dink, to Cowpens. Or better yet, try both!
Have a great trip!

Vero's a really nice hang out. Are you on a mooring? Usually a fun group of boaters there, though we haven't been there this time of year. Marina-wise, the Loggerhead is a nice resort-like setting. I heartily agree with your "who knows where" plan! Best cruising strategy of all!

Thanks for the recommendations...we may consider Angelfish as it looks to have more favorable depth. I will look up your anchorage list. Cathy and I are big Active Captain fans and put a lot of weight into what others are saying. We have absolutely no plan or schedule, other than that we will eventually get to Boca Chica and stay at the base for a while. Somewhere in that busy schedule we have to learn how to catch lobster before the end of the month!

Hi George, we're at the city marina in Vero. Lots of character. We are meeting friends from Tampa so decided to stay at a slip in lieu of a mooring.
Any anchorage recommendations north of Vero to Jacksonville?
