Great place to get some live bait or fuel. Forget it if you have a bigger boat and especially if it is low tide. You need to know where you are going to miss the especially shallow areas.

We rented a double kayak and it was a great trip. Hard work crossing the channel with sand bars to avoid, but worth it. Dolphins came very close to us on the way in and out. It was very peaceful and saw lots of great...More

The Castaways Marina us such a hidden secret that even locals do not know it is there. Except one visit and you are hooked. Small and quaint and beautiful. Ask for Captain Joey for a fishing or outer island charter. Maybe he will bring his...More
