A Boaters Cruising Guide to Marathon and the Florida Keys ...
If you're into boating and just want "Local Information" without glamourous advertising and promotion of expensive marinas and restaurants, then start here. Lisa & I have been based out of Marathon in the center of the Keys for more than 23 years now (2019). I'm a past Commander of our local US Power Squadron, past Port and Fleet Captain, and Board of Governors of the Marathon Yacht Club, and an avid boater. We're liveaboards that have routinely cruised from the Great Lakes to the Florida Keys on the Great Loop routes, plus cruised the Bahamas and Cuba over the years.
