Boating In Stock Island, Florida

Experience The Authentic Keys Charm

Welcome to Stock Island, where the good old days of the Florida Keys are still lively and strong and fishing and boating reign supreme. Though officially part of Key West, Stock Island still holds the authentic Keys charm that used to prevail on its southernly neighbor. So named because it once housed the lower Keys’ livestock, Stock Island’s name belies its earthy atmosphere.

Stock Island remains a working waterfront, busy with shrimping and fishing boats. Drop by Fishbusterz Fisheries, the largest wholesale fishery and retail seafood market in Florida for fresh lobster tails, Key West pink shrimp, Florida stone crabs, grouper and snapper.

Less than five miles from the bustle of downtown Key West, this destination slips you back onto island time with ease.
