Islamorada Activities Things To Do Islamorada

Water Sports

Pelican Cove offers a wide range of local activites that include watersports, sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, snorkeling and scuba diving. Our floating dive platform is a great spot for soaking up the sun, fine-tuning your jack-knife and watching the resident manatees meander by.

Nearby, H2O Water Sports offers half- and full-day wave runner and boat rentals. Local dive shops offer instruction, equipment rental and scuba/snorkeling trips to offshore reefs and the world-famous John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. Pelican Cove is adjacent to the Theater of the Sea, offering easy access to this renowned attraction’s eco-tours and range of interactive animal programs, including “Swim with the Dolphins” and “Trainer for the Day.”

Fishing

It is rumored that Islamorada is home to a larger fishing fleet per square mile than anywhere else in the world so it’s only natural that islanders stake their claim to the nickname “sport fishing capital of the world.” This tropical paradise has the largest charter fleet available anywhere for both back-country and deep-sea excursions to fishing grounds unparalleled in the world. And here at Pelican Cove, we have world-class captains leaving right from our dock.

Whether you’re an experienced angler or baiting your first hook, our captains can take you anywhere – from the Atlantic shoreline to the mangrove-lined bays and canals of the Everglades in search of a trophy-worthy fish, including dolphin, yellowtail, bonefish, redfish, tarpon and sea trout. From deep-sea fishing to fly- and spin-fishing, we know these waters well.
