Sail Away from the Everyday

Welcome to Marathon, home of Skipjack Resort & Marina! Our island home is actually a cluster of small keys, including Boot Key, Fat Deer Key and Grassy Key, that make up this spectacular tropical oasis. We're ideally located in the Middle Keys, halfway between Key Largo to the north and Key West to the south, the perfect destination for your next getaway and a convenient waypoint for boaters looking for a calm berth, on-site dining and a wealth of nautical necessities.

Endless Ways to Play

Whether you're seeking action-filled adventures on the water or a comfy chaise for lazy days by the pool, Skipjack is the perfect place to unwind and reconnect with friends and family.


The Florida Keys are home to some of the best fishing grounds in the world. Amateur anglers and pros alike will enjoy the bountiful Atlantic and Florida Bay waters off the shores of Marathon. Bring your boat to Skipjack or take advantage of local charters crewed by experts who know the best grounds to cast off for our namesake skipjack tuna, as well as tarpon, sailfish, snapper and more.
