We had a blast running the boating trips out of this boat ramp in Marathon. Find it at mile marker 51 behind the huge Marathon Airport runway. Go to the bottom of the airport heading south, then turn right on aviation boulevard. Follow the road down about two blocks from the highway and the boat ramp is on the left. As with most Florida Keys Boat Ramps, you may need to park the trailer at your room rental. Boating to down the keys takes you to the seven-mile bridge and Boot Key Harbor. Going up the islands takes you past a lot of boater friendly bars and ocean access via vaca cut.
This is one of the Boat Ramps in the area that just a few parking spots for the boat trailer. Most people use the launch just to dump in or take the boat out. We do the buddy system, and drop the boat off leaving one with the boat, the other goes back to the hotel with the car, and returns on the bicycle. You will enjoy this area. It takes about five minutes to slowly get to the full speed waterway.
