Marathon Florida Weather for Your Ideal Vacation

Florida Keys weather channels usually provide detailed information on area conditions, including wave heights for the reef, offshore areas and Gulf Stream. However, unless you're familiar with the Keys' geography and weather patterns, interpreting conditions can be difficult, especially in winter. Our Marathon Florida weather guide helps to clear up this confusion.

For example, consider a 25k wind out of the north with a wave height 20 miles offshore of 6 feet. In winter, where you fish on the Atlantic side would probably only be 1 foot. However, on the Gulf or Bay side the wave height where you would fish at that time of year could be 4-6 feet. That's because the Keys run east and west and the Atlantic side is protected by the islands itself.
