Partying on Nixon Sandbar Off Key Biscayne

by Adam Hendel | Thursday, July 17, 2014

With nearly 900,000 registered boats, Florida ranks as America's most popular place for boating 壽潐蹪 and also its deadliest. Nearly two-thirds of the operators involved in Florida fatalities last year had no formal marine safety training. The pervasive culture of alcohol doesn't help, either.

At popular party sandbars like Nixon off Key Biscayne boating under the influence 题錩arrests are almost never made.

We visited the sandbar over the Fourth of July weekend to witness firsthand the popular party spot.
