Mahi mahi, swordfish, tarpon, grouper, snapper, cobia, snook, hogfish, lobster, Islamorada is known worldwide as a premiere fishing destination. Naturally, fishing charters and marinas abound for all budget ranges and tastes. But with miles of barrier reef, Islamorada also makes for a prime diving and snorkeling spot, complete with ancient Spanish shipwrecks, not-so-ancient freighters sunken as artificial reefs and shark encounter tours for those especially brave-heated explorers. Of course Islamorada has a full array of waverunners, paddleboards, parasails, eco tours and other favorite Keys water pastimes as well. Grab a kayak and explore the offshore botanical park, or for a real adrenaline treat, hit the wakeboarding park where you get propelled through the water by zip-lines.
