Dinner & A Show
The most prevalent species of snapper you’ll catch in the Bay is mangrove snapper. Averaging two to six pounds, mangroves are incredibly hard-fighting fish for their size. The smaller fish are a blast to catch for anglers of all ages and abilities, and the larger specimens will test the talents of even the most seasoned angler.
The mangrove’s sweet, white meat is excellent table fare. There’s nothing finer than a platter of mangrove snapper prepared your favorite way – fried, grilled, blackened, baked – at one of Marathon’s many restaurants that offer cook-your-catch.
You may also catch yellowtail snapper, porgy, mackerel, hogfish and possibly even some grouper – all depending on the time of year.
There’s so much to see!
Scenery includes mangrove islands, magnificent resorts and homes, boats of all types and sizes, historic Pigeon Key, the Seven Mile Bridge …

There’s even more to do!
