Discover Adventure in the Florida Keys
Dive into the Florida Gulf Waters
With its glorious year-round sunshine, Marathon is a world-class destination for family vacations, romantic getaways, and adventure tourism. With fishing, diving, snorkeling, watersports, and more to keep you active, you’ll never run out of things to do in the Florida Keys.
The Gulf of Mexico abounds with snapper and grouper, while the backcountry flats teem with bonefish, tarpon, and permit – making Marathon the perfect spot for fishing throughout the year. Oceanside is an outer reef that is a magnet for a wide variety of fish species, with dolphin, tuna, marlin, and sailfish inhabiting the waters. Contact our Adventure Fishing Director to begin planning your Marathon fishing trip.

Beneath the Florida Keys’ pristine waters lie colorful tropical fish, beautiful corals, moray eels and more.
