Saving Cedar Key - Historic Fishing Village to Clam Capital of Florida

Ever wonder what happens to a small community that relies on fishing when the laws about catching those fish change? The net ban looked to destroy Cedar Key's economy - but clam farming was introduced and soon "Clamelot" was born and an entirely new industry of Cedar Key seafood became a solution for many families. The University of Florida has published a great article "Saving Cedar Key" which includes a great video showing the farming of clams.

Cedar Key, Florida is a small artist enclave and fishing village located about 50 miles southwest of Gainesville, Florida; 2.5 hours north of Tampa, Florida; and 3 hours west of Jacksonville, FL. Need our Latitude and Longitude? (Lat: 29.13924419537909 Long: -83.02769958972931) Surrounded by the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, the Cedar Keys consist of dozens of islands or keys. Way Key is the primary key that the city of Cedar Key is built upon. Many islands are not much larger than a pelican's perch and some are only visible at low tide. About a dozen of those keys are reserved as a part of the Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuge and several are designated as "wilderness areas". The Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) hosts some of the largest numbers of nesting birds in Florida. Bird watching is easy, whether you walk the shores or paddle your kayak out to the wildlife refuge. Tranquility's and Serenity's balconies are excellent for birdwatching. It's easy to get to Cedar Key by car, by boat, or by private plane. Cedar Key is also known for its low-key atmosphere, excellent flats fishing and sweet Cedar Key clams. As a part of Florida's "Big Bend" and Nature Coast, the Gulf waters are home to a wide variety of saltwater game fish and shellfish. Many of Cedar Key's visitors are here for the fishing, whether it's in-shore fishing for trout and redfish or deep sea fishing for cobia and grouper among others.

We invite you to reserve one of our Cedar Key Florida vacation rentals - Tranquility or Serenity when you visit Florida's Nature Coast! Enjoy our Cedar Key Guide!
