Marco Island

Marco Island Florida Sports and Outdoors

Marco Island lies in the midst of some of the world's best game fishing waters. Whether choosing offshore or backwater, experienced fishing guides are available to serve both the avid sports fisherman or the weekend enthusiast.

Among the many varieties of species caught bottom fishing over artificial reefs, wrecks, or over patches of rock are red and black Grouper, Lane Snapper, Amberjack, Cobia and Jewfish. Backwater catches include Trout, Mangrove Snapper, Sheepshead, Whiting, and small Shark. Redfish, Tarpon and Snook are caught seasonally.

Marco Island - Paradise
You may have thought that all of Florida is pretty heavenly, but it in fact has a special region known as the Paradise Coast that ranks among the best places to spend a few relaxing days. Collier County is the actual name and it contains the towns of Naples and Marco Island, but you can call it whatever you like. Here are a few ideas; bliss, dreamland, cloud nine...

Let's just focus on Marco Island for this vacation, considering that it is well-equipped to handle all the needs and expectations you have for a sunny beach getaway. Much of the land in these parts is protected as a park and nature preserve, meaning that you'll glimpse the Everglades in all their untouched glory. The splendid marshland and abundant wildlife are just a couple of reasons that this coastal refuge is equated with the idea of paradise.

The rest of the reasons are pretty solid as well. Marco Island's crescent shaped beach encompasses a few miles of white sand and recreation-friendly water. Tigertail Beach Park is an excellent place to sit down for a picnic, a sunbathing session or just a few hours of family fun building sand castles and frolicking in the surf. The sunsets tend to be spectacular, the sea shelling is sublime and the man-made aspects of the area are set up to ensure that every visitor is treated kindly and more
