World Famous Fishing!

Chokoloskee has some of the best off-shore and backwater fishing in the USA. Backwater fishing is angling in the extensive network of bays, mangrove islands and tidal creeks that permeate the region. There are thousands of miles of shoreline and acres of seagrass beds that attract an abundance of salt water fish to the area. . .

Explore the Everglades!

The Seminole Indians call it Pa-hay-okee, meaning Grassy Water. Writer Marjory Stoneman Douglas popularized the term River of Grass to describe its sawgrass marshes. . Our close proximity provides a number of ways to experience nature including boat, airplane, airboat, bicycle and even walking tours. . .
