Area Info
Marathon is the Heart of the Keys and has plenty to keep you busy. The Florida Keys offers 120 miles of perfect balance between natural beauty and extraordinary excitement. And not just because of the legendary fishing and the world's most spectacular dive sites. The Keys is one of the most unique places on earth. Calm. Serene. Laid back. With two oceans full of the world's most sought-after gamefish, grab a fishing pole and get busy. Enjoy fishing for marlin, tuna and dophin on the Atlantic side or try the backcountry for a shot at permit, tarpon, and bonefish. The Dolphin Research Center on Grassy Key is 5 minutes from Seabird and was once the site of Flipper's Sea School where Flipper's original 1950's movie was shot. Travel along the Seven Mile Bridge and discover the beauty of this special scenic drive. Discover what it must have been like to have traveled on Henry Flagler's railroad to Key West. Check out the old conch houses on Pigeon Key, which is accessible from the old Seven Mile Bridge. Visit the spectacular Great Heron National Wildlife Refuge or the Key Deer National Wildlife Refuge. Put on your gear and go for a dive at Sombrero reef or Looe Key National Marine Sanctuary. Take a different approach and discover the kayaking around the inland. Bahia Honda State Park has a georgeous beach, but you'll probably never wish to leave Seabird Key.

The Island was everything a person could ask for in a vacation. Fishing, swimming,scuba diving,snorkling, kayaking, canoing, water skiing. All in the privacy of your own Island. The new outdoor kitchen they have added makes it even more of a paradise.

The peace and tranquility of the island is great and so hard to leave. We made a few trips off the island but soon wanted to get back to the peace of the island. This has been our most relaxing family vacation. Everybody was happy. The Hewitt's Gary, Jo, Tim and Jamie

Granny, in her wisdom and love, gave the gift of a week each on this island to her three children. After our youngest son returned from fishing, we asked, "So what do you think of Seabird Key?" He replied, "It's kind of weird." "Why?" "Well, because I'm only 20 and I know that Seabird Key is the most beautiful place I'll ever be in my life." My, my, how we all love this dear retreat. A thousand thanks to all the creative energy that went into the building of this home, the love and imagination that went into the garden walks on white sand. How we appreciate those who put this all together. A small miracle, really---Thank you for the attention to detail-the intelligence-the love and respect of what was here in the beginning.

Forget the Mideast Peace Summit....how about the "Mid-Keys" peace summit? Our world leaders could certainly learn something about peace here! The home & decor are wonderful with no detail overlooked. Please do nothing to change this special place! This is the keys my grandparents have told us about. To all that have visited Seabird,let's keep it our little secret so we can all continue to come back to thsi very special place!

This is a wonderful place for remembering what's improtant, like watching a pelican catch a fish & forgetting trivia. We saw a sting ray leaping out of the water and we knew why he leaped. We did too.

What a way to start the holidays. This is one of the most beautiful places we've ever been. Our highlight was the moonlight beach and spending time with our dear family. We'll be back!

It is a great pleasure to see there still are individuals with the character willing to create a place of grandeur with flora and fauna that truly belongs in a botanical garden. We are most fortunate to have had the opportunity to make acquaintance with this small slice of paradise. Our thanks to Jeff & Katie, Jim & Deborah and we look forward to our next opportunity to revisit Seabird Key.
