I just got back from an amazing trip with Sundance Vacations to Skipjack Resort & Marina in Marathon Florida. Skipjack Resort was perfect for my family of four, and the staff were unbelievably friendly and accommodating! My family loved the rooms and the rustic hardwood floors. It’s always nice to avoid rugs after a long beach day. So clean!! I was happy to be across from the Sombrero country club golf course and right on the marina, but the best part is Skipjack is located right down the road from the best public beach in all the keys, Sombrero beach. Did you know the keys do not have tons of beaches? I didn’t! So, if you are looking for white powder beaches, pavilions, excellent bathroom facilities, crystal water and waving palm trees, look no further! I could not believe how many fun and exciting kid friendly spots are located between Key Largo and Marathon. Start by downloading the app Gypsy Guide (Miami To Key West version) that will give you a fully narrated guide, telling you the history of each area you drive through and all the places of interest, so you won’t miss a hidden treasure. The highlight for my parents was seeing the African Queen boat, which offers short cruises. If you didn’t know, the boat was from the movie “The African Queen,” and my parents said I must see now. My son loved the free wild bird sanctuary, which has a wide variety of rescued birds. The dolphin research center was my favorite because we could interact and swim with the dolphins! Fun fact, Flipper was filmed there and some of his grandkids are there now! Some other highlights were the hidden tarpon feeding location where you could hand feed small fish to gigantic tarpon, and of course the beach. The fishing, snorkeling, and diving is some of the best in the world! If you are looking for a private carter, I recommend Captain JJ’s charters located right next to Skipjack Resort. After catching a dozen yummy yellowtail, we brought them to Lazy Days South restaurant located just 10 minutes from Skipjack Resort. They prepare your fish however you like with a large variety of sauces and marinates. This was the best meal of the trip hands down, and a perfect spot to end your day and watch the sunset while you enjoy the fruits of your labor! Absolutely loved this @sundancevacations property!!!!
