My family and I were vacationing on North Captiva Island in Florida and I found this snake in the trees where we were kayaking. I was told it could be a cottonmouth but after doing some research I don't think it is because of its color.

My guess is the Southeastern Corn Snake. Common to Florida and the Southeast.

None of our poisonous snakes climb trees as a rule. Some of the water snakes you'll see in trees when kayaking can be aggressive, but not poisonous. Water moccasins tend to stay on the ground and water.

Ding Ding Ding...I think we have a winner. I've never seen a corn snake a.k.a red rat snake near mangroves or salt water although they are tree climbers.
