Islamorada’s FREE Tarpon Pool

What a great FREE attraction! You can spend 30 minutes to an hour here just looking around never realizing time was marching on.

Islamorada Fish Company’s tarpon pool is open to the ocean at one corner allowing wild Gulf Of Mexico & Atlantic Ocean tarpon to enter freely. Though the tarpon are wild, they’ve been conditioned to arrive at pre-arrange feeding times over years and years of repetitive hand-fed rituals.

The pool, as you can see is very large measuring a good 100 feet on all sides with a pedestrian walk bridge diagonally cutting across the open ocean side (as seen below). The absolute best time for viewing is at its evening feeding just before sunset to watch the frenzy for yourself.

There’s so much here to see that you may underestimate your time allotment needed… that my friends is OK… it’s worth every extra minute of it! OH YEAH… the food here is GREAT TOO! 🙂

You can find the Islamorada Fish Company’s FREE tarpon pool by traveling on US-1 to Mile Marker 81.4 bayside. While here, go next door to the Worldwide Sportsman store where you’ll see the Key’s LARGEST FISH TANK on display also for the amazing price of FREE.
