Friends of The Pelican

This is a boater's paradise, with no point on the Keys being further than 4 miles from water and our year-round mild air temperature. Launches and piers are abundant and docking fees are reasonable. Boating allows you the option of relaxing on the reefs, fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, or simply cruising the clear waters. There are also plenty of lovely birds, wildlife and plant life for you to observe.

Utilize our Guest Services to rent a boat for your stay, or bring your own! The Pelican has two (2) boat ramps and two (2) docks on the property. Trailer parking and docking are $10.00 per day. This is available for all boats generally up to 26 feet. All boats and trailers must be registered.

With its warm waters and reef protection, the Florida Keys are often referred to by sailors as the "American Caribbean." The Pelican's bayside location is so sheltered that may captains can easily trim up and move through to the Intercoastal Waterway with no worries. Sailing experiences here can include cruising, racing, and charters for diving, fishing and more! There are several local sailing clubs, with facilities offering courses and certifications. Make sure to inquire with our Guest Services team for more information.

The Keys are a natural playground for Watersports of all kinds. Pick your favorite activity, or try out as many as you can during your island vacation. Just contact Guest Services for any and all assistance you might require to make your adventures happen!
