Boot Key Harbor est située au SW de la Floride, dans le Parc des Everglades, à l'entrée de Little Shark River.
Le chenal est balisé, mais le balisage n'est pas illuminé.
Le mouillage, par 2 m minimum, dans la baie est en général bon quand la baie est calme.
Attention la baie est fréquentée par des alligators, il n'est donc pas conseillé d'y nager! De plus la baie est pleine de moustiques, penser à prendre des répulsifs.
