Charter Fishing in the Florida Keys
Reef Wreck Tarpon Backcountry Offshore
Capt Chris accepts Lifetime Achievement Award from IGFA president Rob Kramer March 2011 for guiding anglers to more than 100 IGFA World Records!
My boat is located at the Tarpon Creek Marina. We are located at mile marker 53.5 off of the only highway in the Keys, US 1. The marina is conveniently located behind the new Holiday Inn Express on the ocean side of the highway. The Holiday Inn is a great place to stay. We are exactly in the middle of the Florida Keys island chain in the city of Marathon. Key West is 50 miles past us and Islamorada is 35 miles back toward Miami. Marathon is a town with every convenience of any city s/a great restaurants etc. A great place to base your Florida Keys Vacation. Another very cool thing about Marathon is the Historic Seven Mile bridge which is a great place to go for a walk and watch the sunset or fish watch. The Dolphin Research Center is very close by as well.
Resorts in the area include Hawks Cay Resort and Tranquility Bay. Hawks Cay fishing charters are pretty common as are fishing charters out of Tranquility Bay resort. Both places are great and like us are family friendly.
If you are looking for something more off the beaten path such as a less expensive non-resort style hotel there are some choices here in the city of Marathon as well. The Ranch House motel is a locally owned and operated hotel that is simple, clean and run by very nice locals. (305) 743 2217.
