Flat Lagoon Setting
Entrance to the park is three miles up from the huge Marathon island, so many vacationers have a very short drive to find such a cheap and thrilling watersports adventure waiting. go
Many of the resorts and hotels in the area (like the Pines and Palms Islamorada) have Boat Ramps for the use of hotel room guests. When you make your boater-friendly reservations, just make sure you understand where your boat will be docked and how specifically the tie up works. Ideally, you want to tie up your boat to dock pilings on all four corners. This is the most advantageous way to keep the boat from touching anything when the wind storms pound it with mother nature's full force. Tieing to just two pilings on one side works fine in nice weather, but will not handle it during any powerful storms. Below are the public boat ramps from Key Largo down to Islamorada. Some are free and others have a dump in fee.
