Fishing/Boating/Water Sports

Directly off the shoreline of our special island is home to some of the best sport fishing on the Atlantic coast. The Treasure Coast of Florida is known as the Sailfish Capital and whether you are after a sport fish photo trophy or some hard fighting fresh local fish for dinner, the local fishing captain`s can get you to the best spots. If fishing is not your sport, there are plenty of ways to explore the rivers and waterways as well as the fresh ocean air with tour craft or private rentals. Like to kayak or paddle board? Rentals are available locally. Don`t just sit on the beach, enjoy the views from on the water! (Photo Credit to Johnathan Wright of Whites Tackle Store).
