The Sugarloaf Marina has been a Lower Keys landmark for decades. Adjacent to the Sugarloaf Lodge at Mile Marker 17 on Sugarloaf Key is the Sugarloaf Marina.

Owners Jeannie and Jimmy Johnson have taken special pride in making the marina a place not only to find all your bait, tackle, gas, ice and beer, but a place where the locals hang out and enjoy the laid back lifestyle of the Florida Keys.

Our marina is accessible by boat from the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf side of the Keys. We do have a boat ramp that is accessible to the public for a nominal fee. This ramp is not intended for large vessels, but there are other ramps in the area that can accommodate larger boats.

We carry live shrimp, crabs and pinfish and also have frozen bait and chum. Our marine store features many of your fishing needs including rods, reels, egg sinkers, nets, hooks of all sizes, bobbers, and sabiki rigs just to name a few items.

We also carry a many of the hardware items that you may need in a pinch when traveling with your boat.

One of our best known features is our Kayak Rentals. We offer kayaks for rent by the hour that you may launch from our location and explore the nearby mangrove creeks, or you may rent our kayaks and take them to your rental home or location in the Keys. Visit our Kayak page for more details. We also offer a wide variety of Ocean Kayaks for sale.

In addition to the marina itself, we also offer fishing charters from a select few local captains. There are plenty of opportunities to fish on the flats for tarpon, bonefish and permit or head offshore to the reef and beyond for sailfish, mahi-mahi, tuna, snapper and grouper.

We hope you enjoy your visit here to the Florida Keys. If there is anything we can do to assist in your boating needs, please contact us by email or call us at 305-745-3135.
