Fish and Fun is a boat rental establishment operating out of Coconut Cay Motel @ 7196 Overseas Hwy, on the corner of Aviation and the hwy. Their old location had a boat ramp, but at the new place, the boat ramp is probably only for motel guests. There is a public boat ramp very near KCB, next to the Island Tiki Bar.

I would recommend Big Time Bait and Tackle for bait and such.

There is a boat ramp in KCB right next to Sparky's, I think they charge about 10.00 to launch. If you are staying on Sandowski Causeway you will have to put your trailer in the designated boat trailer lot (they charge by the week.) We like to launch at the boat ramp that is further south in Marathon by the Police Station. It's very easy to launch at that ramp & theres no charge.

Here's the the boat dock information!

The closest boat ramps are:

1. At the marina along the Sadowski Causeway right here in KCB (launching into the Ocean side) There is a charge for using this ramp. Call Key Colony Beach Marina 305-289-1310 (per quote to me- $10 in and $10 out)

2. Just along US 1 right before the entrance to KCB (if you are traveling toward Key West) and before "The Island" restaurant is a ramp, MM 55 & 49. There is no charge to use that ramp. (launching into the Gulf side) "

3. 33rd St. Dock in Marathon, on the Gulf of Mexico side...... (best one according to my former month long renter)

Actually, it's Vacation Boat Rentals that run the ramp at the KCB Marina. Give them a call instead.

Official Website for Key Colony Beach:


(email or call them for boat storage reservations and cost per day or per week- I was told by KCB Officials that during peak seasons there is NOT enough storage for all the boat trailers, that's why it's good to rent a property that has space onsite!)
