Do Tarpons Bite? We Found Out at Robbie’s! (Islamorada, FL)

April 3, 2014 |

We just recently learned how to fish for tarpon. Today, we’ve changed it up and went to feed them…. HAND FEED these "silver kings!!!" I first learned about this cheap thrill from an Episode of TripFlip from the Travel Channel and was inspired to add it to our itinerary. Experiencing such a thrill in the states was unbelievable. They didn’t even ask us to sign a waiver. Read More

Fishing: Hooking Tarpon from No Name Key Bridge (Big Pine Key, FL)

March 30, 2014 | 1

Another windy day so instead of taking the porta-bote out, we fish off of No Name Key Bridge… right next to the Old Wooden Bridge Marina where we’ve rented a boat slip for the month. We’ve caught various fish from the bridge before… namely, Cero Mackerel and Black Grouper but today we learned how to fish for giant tarpons! Read More

Snorkeling at Looe Key National Marine Sanctuary – Florida

March 21, 2014 |

"Looe Key National Marine Sanctuary was created in 1990. It is named for the HSM Looe, A British ship that wrecked in 1744. Located just five miles from our shore, we are the closest point to Looe Key with running time about 30 minutes." – Strike Zone Charters.

How convenient and just our cup of tea since their 1st tour time was doable – 9:30am. Enough time for coffee and breakfast to get our energy up for the snorkel. They have a 1:30pm tour but anyone who goes out in the ocean knows that the earlier the better. Why? Wind kicks in as the earth wakes up. Enjoy our video of the experience. It was a cloudy snorkel day but fun anyways.

Where in the World Can You Hold a Sloth? (Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Honduras)

March 14, 2014 | 2

We arranged this port excursion outside of Carnival Conquest – Caribbean Cruise. It was very affordable to enjoy the day in Roatan from the scenic drive West and East through villages to visiting the wildlife sanctuaries and getting up close and personal… in this case… a Sloth. We didn’t know what to expect from visits to these wildlife sanctuaries and so we were very delighted to see and hold a Sloth… although, I don’t know if it’s a guaranteed experience by the tour vendor. This particular sloth was more social and had a good temperament for visitors. We were told usually they’re up in the trees so it was a great treat! Read More

We arranged this port excursion outside of Carnival Conquest – Caribbean Cruise. It was very affordable to enjoy the day in Roatan from the scenic drive West and East through villages to visiting the wildlife sanctuaries and getting up close and personal… in this case… Iguanas… which remind me of a legendary, mythical dragon.
