Fishing Reports

Our Fishing reports should always be changing - Click here for recent reports


 You can do a self directed photo adventure, or with some our local guides by boat or local trails. Bugs have not been bad this year and Winter weather is usually great for birds and gator viewing. Weather conditions are improving for trail hiking. lots of wildlife viewing is accessible from a roadside pull off like H.P. Williams Wayside, Janes Scenic Drive and Loop Road. We have seen some awesome birds just north of us on route 29 where there is plenty of safe off road parking for gator viewing,canal fishing or watching the birds.

All About Chokoloskee's Parkway Motel and Marina

The motel The office The marina The cottage

We are Bill and Geri Shelburne - owners of the Parkway Motel & Marina. 

One day, back in 2005, while on one of our frequent visits to the Florida Everglades, Bill stumbled over the little motel with a For Sale sign in the yard. Before I knew it, this became our retirement project.

We have been enjoying the beauty of the Everglades and its unique ecosystem for almost 30 years now. And are having the time of our life hosting travelers and fisherman from near by and all over the world.

We are very proud of our little piece of paradise and enjoy making everyone feel at home at the motel.

We would like to say thank you for giving us the opportunity to serve you.
