Robbie’s Marina in Islamorada, in the Florida Keys, is unchanged for as long as I can remember. It sits on a tiny bit of land right under the overseas highway bridge from the Atlantic and in a cove on the Gulf of Mexico. The feel of Robbie’s is true Keys flavor. There are cute hand-scribed signs everywhere telling you how to live the good life in the Keys. And, as always, you see lots of bight colors. There is nothing, I mean nothing, fancy about Robbie’s. Boats come and go, mostly smaller boats.
You can rent a flat boat, jet ski, kayak, wave runner or charter boat with a captain – but the main draw is the tarpons, large fish that look somewhat prehistoric to me. You pay $3.00 for a bucket of small fish, walk out on the pier and feed the tarpons. And the tarpons are huge, easily 4 feet long or longer. Don’t hang on to the fish though, tarpons are serious eaters. You can also pay $1 to walk on the pier and watch this fun spectacle. I have never been there when someone wasn’t feeding the tarpon.
From the Author: You can go to Robbie’s by water or by car. We arrived by boat, my favorite way to go. Robbie's is at MM 77.5 (Mile Marker 77.5) or 77 1/2 miles north of Key West.
