Islamorada Boat Tours of the Florida Keys

A relaxing three hour boat ride will take you to Indian Key State Historic Islamorada Jet Ski Rental Site. It is a ten- acre island surrounded by the most treacherous Florida reefs. John James Audubon was once a guest at the famous hotel on the island. The hotel had a large ballroom, fancy bar and a bowling alley. The profitable business of salvaging turned the island into a bustling business town with wild parties. In 1840, the town was destroyed. The village has been reconstructed and Park Rangers give tours.
