“Amazing,” “breathtaking” and “impressive” are words often heard from first-time visitors to the end of Robbies dock.
What they’re referring to is the school of 100+ giant tarpon that come here daily and linger for hours.
Maybe the “Silver Kings” just come here to see the humans, but toss a baitfish among them and the water churns as these monsters and the resident pelicans vie for the snack, causing quite a spectacle.
Occasionally, a tarpon actually rises up from the water in a powerful flash of silver and green to meet the fish as it leaves your hand. It’s a sight to behold!
They also have kayak rentals adjacent a unique self guided mangrove tunnel tour, boat rentals, and other trips as well as being the home of the hungry Tarpon restaurant.
