First trip back to Marathon, Fl since the horrible hurricane Irma delivered her destruction. We were amazed with the progress with most businesses reopened. Main Attraction has fully recovered and was just like our last trip in July 17, a great time with lots of...MoreThank you for the review Bill! The Main Attraction crew always looks forward to fishing with you and your wonderful wife. Thanks for helping get the word out that the Florida Keys are indeed alive and well and so is the fishing!

Old City Helicopters, LLC

Our helicopter tours range from a voyage over the shore line or flying the length of the famous 7-Mile bridge to circling the historic Sombrero Reef Lighthouse cruising over Bahia Honda State Park. Walk-ins are welcome and reservation times are available.

Reviewed By Victoria652 - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

This was our second helicopter tour with Old City Helicopers. Our pilot was friendly and very knowledgeable about the area and the sights that we were about to view from the sky. This time we chose the sunset view tour. The sunset was amazing. We also took some pictures and video of Marathon Key and the lighthouse. All I can say is that it was an amazing experience. We will return for a longer flight next time.

The Turtle Hospital

Reviewed By Susan H - Tacoma, Washington

This is a must do if you are a turtle person. The place is amazing and the 90 minute tour is very interesting and informative. The lengths this hospital will go to, to rescue and save sea turtles is impressive. They are nonprofit and money from the tour helps support the program. You can also “adopt” a turtle as well to help support their cause.

Tip.....Call ahead and make reservations as tours fill up fast.

Sunset Park Beach

Reviewed By Deborah G - New Jersey

We always would walk down at sunset from our rental in Key Colony to enjoy the view and park. After Irma hit, the park, and much of Key Colony, sustained quite a bit of damage. The park is totally covered in sand now, but the view is still the same. In time it will be back and as beautiful as it ever was.

Had a great time today with Brian and Wayne showing us how to catch yellowtail snapper. We all together caught 18 keepers and had some other stuff on the hook that we lost.

I highly recommend this company and would look no further.

Thanks Jason and your crews for giving us a perfect day and thanks to Wayne for making us hungry for Coconut snapper with Thai-chili sauce with some of our catch next door at Sparky's Landing.

San Pablo Catholic Church

Reviewed By Terry W - Marathon, Florida

This is a wonderful parish that has been like a family to me for over 25 years. I watched the prayer garden evolve into a treasured place of meditation and peace. Then Hurricane Irma 'visited' the Keys. She got the vegetation from our garden (and the roof from our rectory!), but the church and parish hall are still strong! In addition, the statues in the prayer garden are still there! When you are in the Keys, come and see....we will all watch as the native vegetation comes back to make our gardens lovely again!

Seven Mile Bridge

Reviewed By tagtracy51 - Marathon, Florida

The 7mile bridge is a big cement brige that spans 7 miles. There is no place to turn out to take pictures. We did get a nice photo when we were on a boat to go snorkeling, and went under the bridge. It also looked nice at sunset from the boat.

A Deep Blue Dive Center

Come with the A Deep Blue Dive’s crew to explore the only living coral reef in North America. The "Turtle," a 34 foot Crusader, a six passenger vessel. The "Sea Diver" a 30 foot, twenty-two passenger vessel or the forty-nine passenger, 45 foot Corinthian Catamaran "Island Time." Colorful tropical fish, beautiful corals, moray eels and more are waiting to be discovered beneath the Keys' pristine waters.

Reviewed By nodrama1 - Fairfield County, CT

My kids did the discover scuba program. Melissa, the instructor, was very nice, helpful and patient. The kids had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed their first dives. We did a family dive to Coffins patch, a 20ft dive on a small reef. A good beginner dive.
I recommend this dive center.
