Father’s Day Decadence in the Florida Keys

Every dad deserves a decent dose of relaxation combined with outdoor adventure this Father’s Day. For an extra special treat, let him take the limelight in the heart of the Florida Keys for a June sojourn that’s packed with action and many “me time” moments, all blended together with layers of luxury.

The sub-tropical climate of the Keys makes June a beautifully warm month for exploring the natural beauty of Marathon, FL without it feeling too hot.  It also remains peaceful and calm before the arrival of the summer crowds, making this an ideal time for a quieter family break before the busier vacation months.

Here are our top tips for treating dad to an unforgettable Father’s Day at Tranquility Bay Resort:

The Greatest Catch

How about a Father’s Day fishing trip to help him relax? Just minutes from Tranquility Bay’s dock, our location makes it easy to choose from a range of options, including blue water offshore fishing in the Atlantic Ocean, or backcountry and wreck fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. The waters surrounding the island are awash with fish, from dolphin, tuna and sailfish, to snapper, grouper and marlin.

Swing into Action

Tranquility Bay is home to a pristine putting green by Nicklaus Design. Overlooking the Gulf of Mexico and framed with swaying palm trees, every golf-loving dad will soon place this picture perfect scene top of the list of favorite places to perfect his skills.

Savor Fresh Flavors

Surrounded by an ocean teeming with gourmet delicacies, it’s no wonder that Marathon is one of the top destinations in the world to sample the finest seafood fresh off the boat. Treat dad to the finest Florida Keys flavors at our award-winning Butterfly Café, where delicious seafood dishes include coconut shrimp, mahi mahi with mango salsa, yellowtail snapper and grouper with a tropical coulis. Dad will also love many of our other menu favorites like the Cuban pork chop or Caribbean jerk chicken, followed by an obligatory slice of Key lime pie.

Dive into Adventure

Dad can keep his cool with a refreshing dip in the resort’s lagoon-style tropical swimming pool before venturing off to our nearby private white sand beach. With a huge variety of water-based activities on offer, from snorkeling and diving to jet skiing and paddle boarding, the challenge will be trying to get dad to sit still in the sunshine, especially when you tell him that Tranquility Bay is located close to the only living coral reef in North America! The best way to lure him back onto the powder-soft sand for some quiet time? Just speak to our bar staff at TJ’s Tiki Bar and we’ll shake him up a Mojito in moments.

Sprawl Out and Sleep Soundly

As one of the best family resorts in the Florida Keys, Tranquility Bay offers spacious beach houses with a choice of two or three bedrooms. Sprawl out in the privacy of your place in paradise which features two-level living with a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, a separate dining area and living room with 42-inch wall mounted plasma TV, and wireless internet.

Families on a budget can enjoy our double queen guestrooms which are more intimate than our larger beach houses, but still offer much more space than a standard hotel room.
