Lobster can be found under rocks and ledges on both the Atlantic as well as the Bay side (during season).
Fishing from the Jetty is a lot of fun. There are small sharks, Tarpon, various Snappers and Grunt.
Our marina provides easy access to shallow water bordered by mangroves, and some small mangrove islands less than a mile from the marina. This is a great area to Kayak, you frequently see small baby sharks, tarpon, rays and a variety of tropical fish and birds. Duck Key Island is about 2 miles from our dock.
Kayaks can be rented at marina located directly across the street.
Grassy key has some quiet streets suitable for biking. Bikes can be rented at marina located directly across the street.
Snorkeling is fantastic at numerous nearby reefs and state marine parks (Coffin Patch Reef, Sombrero Reef). Several Snorkel-Boats leave Duck-Key and Marathon for daily trips to the nearby reef.

Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: Engineer and High School teacher. We are a married couple who enjoys fishing, traveling, good music (ie New Orleans Jazz Fest), cooking (ie fish on the BBQ) We work hard, then escape from the real world and go to the Florida Keys as often as we can.
Why the Owner Chose Marathon, FL, USA:
We invested in our rental-units after visiting Florida Keys for 20 years. We decided that Marathon, Grassy Key, is the ultimate Keys location. People are nice and relaxed, it is the place you go when you want to get away from the 'rat-race'. Fishing, Lobstering and snorkeling is phenomenal. While Islamorada and Key West are fun places to visit, you will find the Marathon area more quiet, it's the best part of the Florida Keys. Key West is only an hour drive away, take a day-trip.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Enjoy our private setting. Listen to the birds, gaze at the stars at night, mingle with friendly people who are in the Keys to have a relaxing and good time.
