Okay, so we know why you vacation in the Florida Keys.
The fishing is awesome.
And we totally get that.
In fact, check out our fishing charters for the best of Marathon fishing.
But while you’re here, take some time to relax and enjoy the laid back Keys’ culture, attractions, restaurants and marinas. Here are some of our favorites.
The Turtle Hospital
Come see the world’s only licensed veterinary hospital dedicated to the treatment of sea turtles. This one is a much for the kiddos.
Dolphin Research Center
Swim with dolphins – the ultimate vacation thrill! If you visit before December 19th come by and take some Holiday Photos with a Dolphin at Dolphin Research Center. It’s a great place to learn about this fascinating mammal of the sea.
Ready to learn how to scuba dive? The United States’ only living coral barrier reef lies a few miles offshore. See Delta Shoals, Coffin Patch and Sombrero Reef teem with life and gorgeous coral formations. It’s an easy dive and the scenery is unique.
Another fascinating dive is the Thunderbolt wreck. The ship was intentionally sunk in the Florida Straits in 1986. It now flourishes with life as it becomes part of the underwater landscape.
Spa and Salon
Calm Waters Spa at Hawks Cay Resort in Marathon is among the region’s leading health spas and resorts. Enjoy the salt air and tropical fruits as the spa pampers you with massages, body treatments, facials, and fine salon care. They even have specials for teenagers!
Bait shops and Marinas
No matter what, we know you’ll be fishing, right? So be sure to stop by The Tackle Box in Marathon for (as they put it) “…the right fishing tackle plus advice from locals who fish these waters everyday.”
Keys Fisheries Market and Marina
Get the best in local seafood here, like the excellent Lobster Reuben or Stone Crab Chowder. They are also a full-service marina and local store for that last minute shopping!
