Grab your bucket of bait fish and head down to the dock at Robbie’s Marina in Islamorada. It’s tarpon feeding time! Join visitors from around the world at Robbie’s to hand feed the 50 to 100 tarpon that cluster around the docks, waiting for a snack.

Toss in the bait fish one at a time, or dangle them over the water and see the tarpon jump for a bite. (But watch out for sneaky pelicans, who are hoping for a handout, too.) Buckets of fish are $3.30, and dock entrance is $1 per person, plus tax.

While you’re there, you can have lunch, schedule a party boat ride or snorkeling trip, or do some souvenir shopping. Robbie's is at mile marker 77.5 Overseas Highway. Visit www.robbies.com or call 305-664-8070.
