Guide to the Keys

The Islands of Marathon


The island community of Marathon in the Florida Keys is a tropical getaway for your whole family. It maintains a retro, nautical atmosphere with family-friendly festivals and attractions. Activities include dolphin swims, snorkeling, and boating. Seafood festivals are scheduled throughout the year, and plenty of local restaurants feature fresh catches. Fishing is ideal off the pristine Sombrero Beach. Visit Crane Point to hike to the preserved home of a 20th century settler family.


Below is information on things to do, dining and info for boaters.  Also check out our fun video at the bottom of this page to get you in a Keys-state-of-mind!




Information for boaters

If you are visiting Indigo Reef, there are several boat rental companies in the area. See some links above. Boat trailers cannot be brought on to the Indigo Reef property so you will need to make arrangements to store your trailer elsewhere prior to your arrival. There are companies close by that provide this service and we recommend you call them ahead of time to make arrangements. The prices will vary depending on your needs (hours of operation, in and out service, proximity, etc).

Boat dock spaces are assigned to your designated unit. Unit number and dock space number are located on the dock pedestals. A sticker (located in your Villa) is to be attached to your boat correlating the numbered allocated slip to your unit. All lines are to be tied to the cleats provided on the docks and no lines are to be tied to the pedestals. No boats larger than thirty-one (31) feet length over all (LOA) are permitted in any dock space. You may not to tie up in any other unassigned dock space. When tying up your boats please use proper line tying techniques as the tides are often severe and if your boat is improperly secured you will risk the sinking of your boat in the canal if the boat should get caught under the dock at low tide.
Each villa in Indigo Reef has an assigned boat slip that will accommodate a boat up to 31′. There are fish cleaning stations and hose hook ups close to the boat slips.
