Pleasure trip, that really works well for the Florida Keys Boater. However, you can easily leave the boat at home and enjoy the area on the hotel kayaks. Try to kayak in the direction of the wind as you head out from the boat ramp. That makes it nice and easy when you turn and head back.
The boat ramp here works great on high tide. You have to check the tide charts and dump in then, which makes it nice. They need to dredge it out a bit.
Room for about eight boats, very nice for the fishing person that needs to dock the boat during vacation.
We found the Islamorada Summer Sale, but you have to negotiate on the phone. You will enjoy the property here steps from the ocean, and you get a suite with a kitchenette.
An island style motel and marina, this worked out fine. Located in Islamorada (the heart of the keys), and just off the beaten noisy path of Overseas Highway. The hotel is on a side road. It is a big tropical area with a bunch of oceanfront, dock space, and has a boat ramp on the property as well as an Oceanside Swimming Pool.
The mini-kitchens are fine for making some Key Lime Pie. Just stop on the way down at mile marker 91 and hit the grocery store (91200 Overseas Hwy). Here is all you need to make each pie, we made three here at Pines and Palms upstairs unit.
