Islamorada is known as the "Sportfishing Capital of the World" which is rumoured to host a larger fishing fleet per square mile than anywhere else in the world. This perfect family vacation destination offers something to do in, under, above or near the water 24 hours a day. The clear blue waters surrounding the village of four islands provide superb views from every bridge, waterfront resort, restaurant and home.
In addition to fishing, the Atlantic Ocean and Florida Bay offer adventures in scuba diving, snorkeling, parasailing, wind-surfing, kayaking, boat racing and a variety of nature excursions like hand-feeding giant silver tarpon. Ever since the days of famous authors and sportsmen like Ernest Hemingway and Zane Grey, this area has attracted outdoor competitors and every month offers a wide range of fishing tournaments, races and other sporting challenges.
