Welcome to Parkway Motel & Marina

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.

Our Marina

If you have your own boat then be sure to bring it along. Our full service Marina offers all of the amenities you might expect of an island marina. We have the best and closest access to the Gulf and National Park. Our guides will pick you up at our docks for fishing ,kayaking and photography. We are proud to announce that we dispense Valvtect® marine gasoline. .


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. . .

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. . . . . . . .
