With its large marina area and close location to the reefs, this has to be the most boater friendly spot in Key Largo. I really enjoyed the clarity of the water, making it such a dream vacation. Each day we would venture out and explore both side of the island.
What a nice Key Largo Video List you have put together. You can also boat over to John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park and take advantage of the docks and beach there. It will definitely be warm enough to Go Snorkeling in May. It might not be warm enough in April. One Hour from Miami is a good thing.
On the website, that Florida rate is from Sunday through Thursday, so please make sure to get the same rate for Friday and Saturday when you do your wheeling-n-dealing on the phone.
We found the place for sandwiches to take out on the fishing boat. Take extra just in case you end up floating to Cuba! Chubs and Subs is good and has some excellent subs on the menu: Surf's Up, Meatless Magic, The Classic Italian, The Meatball Monster, Killer BLTs, The Hot Chick, Make-Your-Own, The Cali Club, Tree's Turkey Bomb, and the top dog Philly.
This stuff Around the Waterfront is the coolest. For newbies, bring a pair of polarized sunglasses, large fishing hat, long sleeve shirt, sunscreen and your video camera. Take your catch to Local Restaurants and they prepare it, so you eat your own same day fresh catch of the day.
Yes, the Mahi-Mahi are super to eat. Everyone loves to catch Big Fish! You will need a giant Fish Cooler for return back to your condo unit. So many things to do and perfect for all ages! Nice Key Largo Mahi-Mahi fish here.
An easy winner for your pre Reef Snorkel Breakfast Plate is the DJ's Mile Marker 99 Diner. Go with the Corn Beef Hash Bash (Two eggs with a half pound of grilled corn beef hash) or the very tasty Meat Lovers (A mixture of sausage, bacon & ham, wrapped with cheese).
