Boot Key is an island in the middle Florida Keys located adjacent to Key Vaca. Boot Key is within the city limits of Marathon, Florida, United States. The island is largely undeveloped despite having a bridge spanning Boot Key Harbor to Key Vaca, which is now closed to pedestrian and vehicular traffic.
Immediately adjacent to Boot Key is a 38-acre (150,000 m2) tract of land from which the United States Government broadcasts Radio Marti. These broadcasts consist of news and cultural information intended for residents of Cuba.
A hawkwatch is conducted every fall on Boot Key.
