Uber sounds like the best for the race days. May just rent scooters for Saturday to tour around and see the sites. Thanks

Uber is in the Keys, we used them in Marathon and Key West last month.

we plan on parking our car and using Uber and also renting bikes for the **** of it for the weekend during the races since we can lock them up at the hotel.

Every year I've been there (last 5-6 before last year...) I've always rented a scooter an cruised all over. I never got a ticket or had a parking issue ??? 7-10 days each year.

first year I tried to walk everywhere. bad idea for this fatboy... the scooter makes it alot more enjoyable.

Have driven an Escalade ext, crewcab long bed dually, and a Cadillac xts... all were a PITA to drive and park in town during race week.

2 scooters for 9 days cost me about $400 ?

Scooters are where its at... As long as you aren't running red lights or bouncing them off parked cars, no worries from the po-po. Just be sure NOT to get the nice new scooter from the rental place so they arent hassling you about small scratches when you return. Pretty common for "someone" to jam theirs in next to yours in a scooter parking area. (They get tight)

I don't think Gilbert's docks are back in working order for a large group yet. Last year they had 3 available lunch options. We did the Faro Blanco option in Marathon.

You are correct Cash. The docks at Gilberts are still busted up somewhat and cant handle the rafting

Went there for lobster season when you let us keep the boat for the night, place was pretty good and a nice spot to check out I thought.
