Gulf of Mexico
Come visit the tropical waters of the Florida Keys.
Whether you take the boat to the blue waters of the Gulf Stream to catch Sailfish, Wahoo, Dolphin (Mahi), Kings, Tuna or Marlin or fish the tropical waters of the Florida Keys coast or Gulf of Mexico for Cobia, Grouper, Spanish Mackerel or Shark we have the fishing here for you!
Big game fishing is king in the Islamorada area; the many celebrities of the past and present who have been drawn here would attest to that fact. The Gulf Stream comes in close and that is where you find the fish. Islamorada boasts the largest concentration of fishing boats in the Florida Keys. If the price tag for a private charter is beyond your means, you can always reserve a place on a party boat. Bridge fishing is very popular too, but you do need your own equipment and a license. Many restaurants in the area will cook your catch.
Many interesting dive sites grace the waters around Islamorada. Alligator Reef Light, Davis Reef (with its statue of Buddha), Horseshoe Reef (with its statue of Jesus) and Pickles Reef are only a few. The San Pedro Underwater Archeological Preserve and the Eagle site are great for wreck diving. Snorkelers can have great fun at Cheeca Rocks, located 600 yards out from Cheeca Lodge, and Hens and Chickens Reef, with its huge coral heads and caves.
Reefs, wrecks, ledges.
