    Fish, Float and Fun – Boat Ramps and Marinas in SoFla

     

     

    Hello our #SoooBoca and South Florida friends! We took a quick trip to the Florida Keys to do a little fishing and Keys time stuff and thought that we would pop up a post with a list of marinas and boat ramps in our area that are open to the public! Whether fishing, diving or pleasure boating there is a plethora of things to do on the water all over #SoooFlorida. From the beautiful blue Atlantic ocean to the intracoastal and local lakes we enjoy South Floridians love their water activities! Do you have a favorite marina? We would love for you to comment and share!

    Fun fact…did you know about the  Florida Council of Yacht Clubs a fantastic organization made up of 36 yacht clubs located around the state from the panhandle to the Florida Keys. Check out the boating activities and information about becoming a member of this boating organization.

    Since fishing has been a big part of our family we thought we would also add some great organizations that can help you learn how to fish! Yes ladies you can learn from some of the best in our fabulous state of Florida! Check out Ladies, Lets Go Fishing founded by Betty Bauman who says over 8000 women have learned to fish over the last 20 years due to her organization!

    PS…since this is being written from one of our faves, Key Largo, note they are having an event here June 23-24 Keys Fishing Adventure Learning on the Water but if you can’t wait they have some events in Palm Beach trips to Cuba planned (go to the link and confirm any and all details). While you are at it check out the International Women’s Fishing Association for some great history on amazing women anglers!

    Keep in mind the State of Florida has amazing fishing clinics for kids and people of all ages so check out this link for more details Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission

    If diving and snorkeling are your thing you can get with local dive shops and dive boats that are all around South Florida. Looking to get more info on getting started we have a link to Yelp to help you out! Boca has some great shops including Force-E and Dixie Divers that can guide you on all your diving needs. Favorite dive shop? Lets us know in the comments below!

    Lastly we have included some links to help you find public boat ramps and marinas around South Florida. Just click on the links and remember some require a city permit/sticker so know before you go! Please do you own due diligence and contact cities, counties and marinas for the most up to date information. We also like to travel and usually it involves water of some sort so check out our travel vlogs!

    Thinking of buying a boat or a house that has a dock or slip? Let us know as we can refer you to yacht brokers we know and of course two of the #SoooBoca squad are Realtors (Michele Bee and Kylie Bee are with RE/Max Services) and can help you with buying that waterfront home for your boat…or boats!

    (This shot is from a Boca Beach cam…you can check in, watch the waves and take a break from work from afar just click here 

    Summer time, summer time, sum sum summertime is here baby!

    It is time to breath a bit and hit the beaches and boy do we have amazing beaches in #bocaraton.

    I grew up hanging out at Red Rocks (now Red Reef) and still am amazed at the beauty of our local Boca beaches.

    From Spanish River Park to Red Reef to the Palmetto Pavilion and county run (yup) South Beach Inlet at Camino Real there are many choices for diving, snorkeling, fishing, boating and of course simply relaxing and building your dream home ie. the sandcastle. There is even a dog friendly beach up at Spanish River Park!

    Intertwined with parks that have space to BBQ with picnic tables and playgrounds you can simply take a drive up A1A and pick from a variety of lovely beaches! We are so lucky that the city had the infinite wisdom to protect our miles of beaches here for future generational enjoyment.

    We love to go to the beaches no matter what time of year it is. There’s are the surfers, the sailers, the coffee drinkers and the bikers all overlapping and converging on our beautiful beaches. At anytime you can find solace at the beach with the lure of the Atlantic Ocean at your feet. The calm sound of the waves draws you in as you gaze out to the horizon watching birds, fish jump and fishing boats heading out to fish or coming home for the day.

    Which is your favorite beach in Boca?

    I go back and forth but mainly I love the South County Park beach that is on A1A and Camino.

    I love the jetty and the inlet and all the people fishing there. It feels like home to me but any beach in Boca is fabulous so there you have it!
