Robbie's Marina in Islamorada

If you are visiting the Florida Keys, Robbie’s is a place you must take the time to explore.   Robbie’s is famous for its hungry tarpon, a prehistoric looking fish that linger around the boat docks.  Many of the tarpon at Robbie’s average over 6 feet long.  A dollar admission fee, and two dollars for a bucket of baitfish enable you to feed the swarming mass of over 100 fish.  The tarpon have been known to leap out of the water to grab the fish right from your hand.

But Robbie’s is so much more than just a spot to feed the tarpon.  First of all, its location is phenomenal, with swaying coconut palm trees and exquisite views of where the Atlantic and Florida Bay waters meet.   There is truly something for everyone at this little slice of paradise.   Robbie’s is conveniently located in Islamorada on the bayside at Mile Marker 77.5.
