Default last minute keys trip help

Trying to book house and boat for rental for 4-2 thru 4-9-11. Been going thru lot of old post trying to get info. We have not decided exactly where to stay yet. Looking for any and all suggestions. Will be bringing wife and 2 teenage kids. Looking for house with dock preferably with places nearby we can use kayaks safely. Also wanting to rent boat for 4=5 days to do some snorkeling and off shore fishing. Mostly been looking around Marathon. A few questions as I have never been to the keys:
want to try for mahi = possible without going 15-20 miles out?
boat rental- any info on conch rentals-boats, bigtime boat rental,others?
best places nearby to snorkle?
Any islands that you can go to for snorkeling, anchor for hanging out- don't know if prohibited.
If anyone has a place for rent, please contact me with info. Always very respectful of others property and will always be left clean. thanks for any info you can give.

Look on here I think at Trading Dock and a THT member has a nice Condo in Key Largo or you can also hit VRBO to find a place.

Boat rentals, here is one but I would CALL NOW

Also MOST all houses but not all will be on a canal leading to Gulf and a short trip to the Atlantic

Go to the Florida Sportsman web site and they have a Keys section for fishing and General info, GREAT FOLKS on there and they will point you in right direction

Default Marathon Rental

Here is my place in Key Colony Beach, Marathon.

Great rental, 60 foot of dock and swimming pool.
Easy access to Atlantic and Florida Bay.

Mahi can be caught close in, just depends on the Gulf Stream.
