Islamorada has long been known as the Sport Fishing Capital of the World, with easy access to a wide variety of fishing including backcountry, deep-sea, bridge and flats fishing.  Twenty miles up US 1, Key Largo’s main claim is that of the Scuba Dive Capital – with its close proximity to John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park – but in recent years, Islamorada has been broadening its dive operations and opportunities to explore the Reefs off of Islamorada.  Divers can explore the 287 foot ship The Eagle, Pickles Reef, Davis Reef, Conch Wall, Alligator Reef and Crocker Wall.  Close in shore and easy to get to is Cheeca Rocks, allowing visitors to view a variety of coral formations and tropical fish with shallow water snorkling.    Just a mile up the road from the properties, you can learn all about diving by visiting the History of Diving Museum.
