Tarpon Flats Marina
If you fancy fishing, kayaking or just finding a place to rest your head then Tarpon Flats Marina might be right up you street.
Unlike a lot of the Key largo Marinas, this one is not a full service marina, which means no fuel or ramps. However they can cope with boats up to 30 feet in length.
And with a few slips for short term use, and a collection of local guides that can collect you and take you out on the Florida Keys waters then it certainly is a marina which is worth looking into.
