Islaoramada was a winter haven for us for many years. We would spend a week there in one of the resorts. At that time the Coral Grill was open with an all you could eat buffet.

The weather was great there most of the time but once in a while a cold front would extend all the way down the East Coast.

A sailing buddy and his wife sailed their sister ship to ours all the way down to Marathon and later Key West. They lived on the boat in the winter.

We like the Keys a lot.

Details on this photo. Where, how, and what direction faced, north or south. Nice one!

As I recall all the old bridges are on the West side of the new highway. That makes this a northern View, considering the width of the islands in the photo, I would guess this is just south of Deer Key, and north of Key west? Kinda a guess from the contour of the photo though.

Who did you fish with? I have agreed to take my wife to the Keys in May, since I have used my last 15 vacations for hunting trips to Africa, Alaska, BC, etc. I did inform her that I would like to catch a tarpon or two and maybe try the flats for some bonefish.

Great pics, but I never have figured out that whole Florida-spinning reel thing.

I'm leading a Boy Scout Crew down to Islamorada & Summerland Key in June of 2008. We're supposed to sail, snorkel, kayak, and fish offshore and backcountry.
It's still three months away and I can't wait, so I'm reading everything I can find.
I understand we should have great dolphin fishing at that time of year. I've done that before off Palm Beach and it was a HOOT! We could do that all week as far as I'm concerned. I just hope the scouts have as much fun as the leaders...

It's one of the most spendy locations I know of for a trip like this, have you guys actually researched the expenses involved with this regarding fishing and other recreation? Things must have changed a whole lot since I was in the scouts a very long time ago. No way we would have been taken on a trip of this magnitude and expense!

Um, yes.
Under $1,300 per person door to door, including air, food, lodging, fishing, etc. All thanks to the fact that the Boy Scouts of America have thier own facilities in the keys just for "High Adventure" trips like ours.

That's gotta be the single best scouting location in North America!

We've come a long way from sitting in someone's basement working on the Basketry Merit Badge, haven't we.

I'll ask for advice here right before we leave, and report on it when we get home.
