This is a very comfortable Marina. The city of Islamorada recently purchased it though for use as their new "City Hall" and have shut down the nice restaurant bar (March 2000), and the sleeping rooms ashore. You can still get dockage here though. Small adjacent beach with swimming area. Not much around the Marina within walking distance .Local information provided by Greg Absten, of www.bootkeyharbor.com
Located an hour and a half south of Miami, on the southern tip of beautiful Islamorada in the Florida Keys, you will find Bud N' Mary's Fishing Marina. Established in 1944 and home to over 40 legendary fishing captains and guides, it is the oldest and largest fishing fleet in the Florida Keys.
Islamorada is known as the Sportfishing Capital of the World, and rightfully so. More world record fish have been caught from our waters than any other location on earth. What facilitates Islamorada's reputation is that the Atlantic Ocean, Florida Bay and the Gulf of Mexico all surround this island in the central Keys. Every fish that swims in our hemisphere can be caught here.
he Marina at Holiday Isle offers transient dockage, boat rentals, diving and snorkeling trips, sunset cruises (in season for parties of 8 & above only) and a large charter boat fleet.
One of the most exciting Keys experience is fishing. Nowhere else in the country do you have two completely different but equally challenging types of fishing. On one side of US 1 there is flats fishing in the backcountry of Florida Bay. Just on the other side of the highway is the Atlantic, with offshore, deep-sea fishing. Contact the Marina to get set up with one of our experienced charter boat captains.
If you are an experienced boater in your own right, but don't have a boat with you, contact Holiday Isle Boat Rentals. They'll get you out on the water in a jiffy!
The Holiday Isle Dive Shop has diving and snorkeling trips every day, and then runs sunset cruises in the late afternoon. They also stock dive and snorkel gear, tee shirts, bathing suits and more. Stop by for a visit to their store.
Our marina can accommodate a variety of vessels, whether you are passing through or need a slip for a week end or looking for something more permanently like a new home for your boat, Smugglers Cove is your connection to all the pleasures that boating has to offer!
