Shouldn't you have included the Intracoastal Waterway somehow?
That would be included in the Gulf of Mexico, Florida Keys, Atlantic Ocean. I could have mentioned that they include the Intracoastal Waterway, but I don't know how much of the trip involved the IW. They might have sailed offshore for much of the time.

They probably did at every opportunity since it is a trawler. These are primarily flat water boats that roll considerably in a seaway. They would take it offshore only if sea conditions were favorable. Besides you only get to see all those interesting places if you stay inshore or in the ICW.
