Our onsite dive shop, Sea Monkey’s, is a one-stop source for everything you need to get out and enjoy the calm, clear waters of the Florida Keys. Sea Monkey’s offers wave runner, sea kayak, paddleboard, boat, and bicycle rentals, as well as full dive certification programs, refresher courses and referral/check-out dives. You’ll also find snorkel gear, dive accessories and some of the island’s best t-shirts and gifts.
In addition, the resort is in close proximity to the Theater of the Sea, offering easy access to this renowned attraction’s eco-tours and range of interactive animal programs, including “Swim with the Dolphins” and “Trainer for the Day.”
It is rumored that Islamorada is home to a larger fishing fleet per square mile than anywhere else in the world so it’s only natural that islanders stake their claim to the nickname “Sport Fishing Capital of the World.” This tropical paradise has the largest charter fleet available anywhere for both backcountry and deep-sea excursions to fishing grounds unparalleled in the world.
Whether you’re an experienced angler or baiting your first hook, local captains can take you anywhere – from the Atlantic shoreline to the mangrove-lined bays and canals of the Everglades in search of a trophy-worthy fish, including dolphin, yellowtail, bonefish, redfish, tarpon and sea trout. From deep-sea fishing to fly- and spin-fishing, local captains know these waters well.
Our first recommendation for the finest fishing fleet is Postcard Inn Islamorada Marina, located Oceanside at the South End of Windley Key in Islamorada, Florida. To contact, call 305-664-2321 ext. 641 or email Marina@holidayisle.com.
We also recommend Bud-N-Mary's Marina, located a short eight-minute walk from Amara Cay Resort. To contact, call (305) 664-2461 or visit www.budnmarys.com.
