    I've got to diagree with The Donz. Key Largo is not "The Key's" have to go at least down to Islamarada to experiance the real deal. In the past few years the Lobstering has been better in Marathon than in Islamarada. I've been going down there for about 20 years now and usually do 3 trips a year down there. Dave Warden

    The Key to the Keys

    I've had the chance to sample of bounty of the Keys with Tonto, Parnell and Wicked, and let me tell you it's a blast no matter. They're all great company and really "know" they're way around.
    But you should invest in a guide (Carl Hanson comes to mind) or go with a group unless your really great at navigation and can really "see" the depth of the water.
    My all time favorite place to Stay is Hawks Cay on Duck Key but that's just because I can keep the boat right out back. All the places that Wicked and Tonto named are easy to get to once you know the ins and outs and really the biggest thing to remember is that the tide is often a player and you don't get that with any type of lake boating. Marathon's great but the bottom line is that your gonna dock somwhere and probably walk or taxi to your hotel. I prefer Islamorada, and the Tiki Bar or the Marriott, or Westin on Key Largo because you can dock right there and sleep and then taxi or shuttle to dinner. the thing is how much do you really wanna boat.
    Me, well I never want to get into a car once I get the boat wet so that's why the preference to places that I can dock and stay.
    No Matter what it's a great way to kill some time and work on the old tan.
