Welcome to Boating Knots

These animated knots are primarily for boaters, but many are useful for anyone who uses rope and values safety.


The selection of knots is based on many years of sailing combined with feedback and advice from several helpful captains. The knots are arranged in alphabetical order.


Rope used in boating is durable and expensive and is often handling heavy loads, e.g., when berthing, mooring, towing another vessel, preparing for a storm, or managing sails. The emphasis, therefore, is on safety, reliability, and convenience. In contrast to the fishing knots, value is also placed on being able to use the rope repeatedly and untie each knot without difficulty.

The best keys snorkeling in Florida is actually not where most people think (it surprised us). While Key Largo and Key West are the most popular spots, by far the best snorkeling is to be found between these two keys.

There are a bunch of snorkel locations that are simply stunning, some of the best we have ever seen anywhere. They are located in the waters off Islamorada (Matecumbe Key), Marathon (Vaca Key), and Big Pine Key.

We call all of these lesser known snorkeling grounds the Middle Keys, because, well, they are in the middle.

All of these reefs are reached by boat tours, and we normally prefer destinations that have more beach access. But we don't let that stop us, because the health of the reefs at these locations make the Florida Keys one of the best places to snorkel.

We will go into detail below about each of the Middle Keys snorkel spots below. You can also explore our main page for snorkeling the Florida Keys.
