Marathon, FL

Marathon’s waterfront boasts fine restaurants, beautiful beaches and access to world-class diving and snorkeling. It is a cruiser’s dream, with extraordinary marine services, comprehensive provisioning opportunities, fine dining and a wonderful community feel. You’ll meet dozens who came here to visit and simply could not leave. The marina loans out bikes to visitors who can show evidence of a working lock, and that makes provisioning a breeze. West Marine is conveniently located at 2109 Overseas Hwy. (305-289-1009), while Seamark Electronics is at 2994 Overseas Hwy. (305-743-6633), should you need them.
