Cow Key Channel, entre Stock Island et Key West, est étroit et balisé.

Attention au haut-fond à environ 0,2 M au SSW du point SW de Cow Key.
Il faut être prudent en empruntant le passage car celui-ci est sujet à l'ensablement. Il est conseillé de se renseigner auprès des marins locaux avant de prendre le canal.
Deux ponts routiers fixes, d'une largeur minimale de 70 m, traversent le canal. Un câble aérien traverse aussi le canal à une hauteur de 7,5 m.
