"Your Own Private Island" Seabird Key is a ten acre tropical island hideaway located about one-half
mile offshore Marathon in the Florida Keys, "American Caribbean".
When you are a guest of Seabird, you will have the entire island to yourself, including a stilted,
exotic hardwood beach house (the only house on the island) and a runabout to visit the mainland, and
to fish, snorkel, explore the back-country, or to just have a serene sunset cruise.
Your home on the Island, which is fully equipped, sleeps eight, and is furnished with antiques and
fascinating Caribbean accents. In addition, your home has multi-level porches and a 35' widow's walk
which affords 360 degree ocean views and a spectacular panorama of the bird sanctuary.
A palm shaded, sandy beach with hammocks and chaises provides a fantasy setting-right out of Bali
Hai-for totally private sunbathing, exploring jungle trails, and just enjoying the ocean breezes,
sunsets and relaxing tranquility. Within minutes, you will experience the thrill of snorkeling or
scuba diving on some of the most spectacular coral reefs in the world. Offshore and back-country
fishing are the best to be found anywhere!
While you and your group will be the only occupants of "Your Own Private Island", our Manager, who
lives on the mainland, is available 24/7 to assist you as needed. He will greet you upon arrival at
our landbase in Marathon, help you load your gear for the trip out to the Island, give you a brief
boating indoctrination while going out to Seabird (a five minute ride), help you get settled in and
familiar with your home, and then turn the keys to your house and boat over to you and return to the
After 14 months in the Iraqi desert, Seabird Key was the paradise that we needed. What an amazing job you all have done to ensure that we wanted for nothing. We loved the wildlife and the kayaking. Even though the Keys were brushed by hurricane Fay during our visit, it was handled beautifully and everything was perfect. We look forward to visiting next year. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Our guests all love the tranquility and privacy of Seabird Key, as well as the natural beauty of
being on a tropical island with a white sandy beach to live-out their fantasies. The local coral
reefs and offshore and back country (Everglades) fishing is legendary (bonefish, tarpon, permit,
sailfish, wahoo, snapper, grouper) and is ranked as the best in the world. Other popular attractions
