Located near the Seven Mile Bridge bayside in the lower Florida Keys, the marina provides access to the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico for excellent fishing, diving and pleasure boating.

An hour north of Key West and two hours south of Miami, it’s a popular destination for cruising clubs and yacht rendezvous.
