Are you angling to do some fishing on your next getaway? Then it might just be time to “seas” the day at Islamorada, one of the best fishing spots in the keys. Nestled between Florida Bay’s backcountry and the Atlantic Ocean lies Islamorada, known as the sport-fishing capital of the world. It comes by its name honestly. The birthplace of both backcountry sport fishing and saltwater fly fishing, Islamorada has welcomed some of the world’s most renowned anglers to its shores and waters. Are you ready to join them?

Islamorada: Sport Fishing Capital of the World

Located just 10 to 20 miles offshore is the Gulf Stream and combined with the proximity to the Atlantic and Florida Bay brings virtually every fish imaginable to these waters at some point or other. Our waters are richly diverse, and fish are plentiful, including:

  • Swordfish
  • Snappers
  • Sailfish
  • Groupers
  • Bonefish
  • Redfish
  • Permit
  • Snook
  • Tarpon
  • Dolphin
  • Marlin
  • Kingfish
  • Wahoo

You can fish from the piers, off the beach, off the bridges, or charter one of the many professional boats piloted by tournament-grade captains.

While it may be among the best fishing spots in the keys, fishing is not all that Islamorada has to offer. This picturesque town might be known for its lively and biodiverse waters, but there is plenty more to do here outside the water, from birdwatching along the shore to hiking in state parks. If you want a little non-fishing water fun, then kayaking, scuba diving, and jet skiing can be good options.

We have more than 100 wet slips that can accommodate boats up to 70-feet long for both transient and liveaboard boaters. Our services extend far beyond the dock. From the moment you step ashore, you can take advantage of all of our amenities, designed to ensure your comfort throughout your stay. Grab some barbecue, relax in a Tiki hut, or enjoy drinks at the Fin & Juice.

Our more than 20-acre facility has everything you need, including:

Our houseboats offer a different kind of adventure. Our well-appointed houseboats are right on the water close enough for you to dangle your feet in the water while sipping your morning coffee. Fish from dawn till dusk and then come back to prepare an evening meal in your fully equipped houseboat kitchen and sip wine while watching dolphins from your balcony.

At Mangrove Marina Tavernier, your safety and enjoyment are our top priorities. Each houseboat is cleaned according to CDC and American Hotel and Lodging Association Standards. We offer remote check-in and check-out upon request for your safety and convenience.
