Top 10 Things to Do in Tavernier

10. Paddleboarding

The tranquil waters surrounding Tavernier make it the ideal spot for paddleboarding. Whether you are a beginner or a regular paddleboarder, you will love paddling the flats and mangroves, spotting tarpon, manatee, dolphins, and starfish.

9. Swim with Dolphins

At Theater of the Sea, you can book private interactions with dolphins, sea turtles, sea lions, and other marine creatures in their lush tropical wonderland and lovely lagoon.

8. Snorkeling

See the waters of the Keys from a whole new perspective. Try snorkeling along the Hen and Chickens or Cheeca Rocks and see just how much marine life you can spot through the crystal-clear waters.

7. Bike rental

Take the scenic route through Tavernier on a bicycle. Bicycle rentals are available for fun, exercise, or convenience, and most dining, shopping, and entertainment venues in Tavernier are a quick bike ride away.

6. Kayaking

How does a kayak adventure sound? Traverse the shallow, grassy waters and thick mangroves to spot stingrays, nurse sharks, sponges and birds, and more.

5. Ecotours

Explore the environmental wonders of Tavernier and the Keys on an eco-tour. As you venture deep into the bays surrounding Tavernier, you might just spot bald eagles, manatees, Great White Heron, bottlenose dolphins, baby sharks, or even saltwater crocodiles.

4. John Pennekamp State Park

The first undersea park in the U.S., John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park is home to lush seagrass beds, colorful coral reefs, and mangrove swamps. The diverse marine life is among the richest in the area, and you can snorkel, scuba dive, or take a glass-bottom boat tour to see everything this beautiful area has to offer.

3. Fishing

Tavernier is one of the best places in the world for fishing. Take a charter and look for blue marlin, yellowtail, grouper, sailfish, kingfish, and more.

2. Enjoy Meals Fit for Merfolk

After a full day of activities, you likely need to refill your energy tank. You won’t have to go far to enjoy the bounty of the ocean. Mangrove Marina offers cozy barbecue facilities and tiki huts where you can enjoy a private cookout, or you can prepare a fresh seafood feast in your houseboat’s fully equipped kitchen. We have everything you need to ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible.
