Welcome To The Florida Keys

Island State Of Mind

The Islands of Islamorada is one of the most INCREDIBLE fishing destinations in Florida. When you are traveling to Islamorada, the outdoor experience is a must. Monroe County, where the city of Islamorada resides is a beautiful destination with a lot of offer. Take a break from the sandy beaches, shopping, or nightlife and spend a day on the water.


Islamorada is known as the “Sportfishing Capital of the World.” These are mighty big words, but the town sure does back them up. With the Everglades on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other, the sky’s the limit on an Islamorada fishing trip. If anything, the main problem is that there’s too much water to explore.
