The folks at IslaMarine are awesome to work with. Heidi is the office manager, she can hook you up----we've left our trailer there a few times. You can drop in at a public "ramp"---really just a dirt incline/decline just south of bud n marys on the west side....good luck

Is Indian Key fill still a decent public ramp? It's been many many years so I could be really far off base.

That's the public ramp I was planning on using but on the FWC website it says that one is closed due to sewer line construction but the date was 2014 and it also said it did not have an expected reopening date so I wasn't sure if it was never updated or what the deal was.

I used it last year.....so whatever was happening in '14 is done.....or VERY delayed, that's always a possibility in the Keys too!

Just used the ramp last week. It is open for use. If it is a weekend, go very early. You can store the trailer at The Guy Harvey Islander Oceanside for free if you are staying at the resort (bayside or oceanside).

I love the Keys but, what passes for a "ramp" down there is a bit amusing.

As stated you are able to keep your trailer at the Islander Oceanside..area to the northeast of the office.
I used Anglers House Marina's ramp in June..they are just south of the Islander Bayside..one of the better ramps I have ever used in the Keys..ramp fee is $30 but get a receipt and show it to them when you need to pull the boat out and it will be no charge.
I wouldn't use Indian Key for anything bigger than a jet ski but maybe that is just me.

There is also good ramp behind the tackle center. I think it is owned by Lorelei. I'm not sure about their use policy.

Sea Bird marina. A little south of where you are, but not a steep ramp and they store the trailer there. $15 to launch....

Founder's Park boat ramp is 4 miles east of The Islander. Don't remember the cost, but it was a good ramp. No trailer storage there though.

I did not know That nor does it tell you that on the website. I called to confirm and they did in fact tell me I could store the trailer there at no charge, thank you for that

This ramp is for guides only, I will launch after 4 when the guides are done for the day.
