Things To Do

Inside or outside our property, you will never run out of things to do! Check out these activities that you can do while staying at Key Largo Cottages.


Sail around the Florida bay, explore some uninhabited Keys and Florida Everglades islands, or sail to local attractions, like the Dolphin Cove, parasailing places, jet ski /power boat rentals, or  the place where the movie Key Largo with Humphrey Bogart was filmed  (a local’s hang out) and many restaurants within the 2 to 7 miles north of us range!

Our Florida Bay and Everglades sailing adventures include sailing to a small island with a sandy beach and experiencing a mud bath in the middle of the place (no extra charge for the mud bath…LOL) , you may also chance upon sailing with the dolphins on your way to this slice of paradise !

With our free 22’ sailboats you can sail all you want all day long from sun up to sun down! We provide you with charts and tips on places worth sailing to like our Mangrove Jungle Tour.

The Mangrove Jungle Tour!
This is a self-guided kayaking/sailing adventure that you, your family, and friends will love (we provide the charts and local knowledge to find it). The Mangrove Jungle Tour consists of sailing a few miles into the Everglades. There you will anchor your boat, jump into your kayaks, find the small opening that starts you kayaking into the canopy maze of mangrove water trails abundant with tropical birds, reptiles, and more. Explore the water trails that will lead you into a secret Indian spot called the “Hidden Lake” where the gentle Florida manatees can be found. This is a great trip not to be missed…


Also once a week we take out our guests for a Sunset Cruise on our 40’ Catamaran with a water slide on the back! Enjoy the awesome Key Largo sunset while sipping a cool drink with your new friends. Something you will remember for many years to come.

Sailing lessons can be provided for those who are interested in learning how to sail or would wish to polish their sailing skills.

For bareboat or captained chartering please call us in advance, at Key Largo Cottages, we provide all your sailing needs!



You can enjoy our free kayaks and kayak to a nearby sunken boat on your way to a deserted island or head to the mangroves with cool canals, iguanas hanging in the trees above you, manatees and 120 pound tarpon fish below you. Also just to the north of us you can kayak up to one of our local watering holes with a restaurant on top of it.

If your kayaking thirst is for something more enduring and you are in shape to kayak 2 miles each way, (most guests sail towing their kayaks) check out Key Largo Cottages’.


This is a must do for the whole family! The water around our docks is clear and safe for you to snorkel and swim in. It is also abundant with fish, beautiful shells, starfish, and some corals. There are also many places to kayak and snorkel around like our bay side sunken boat or ocean side coral reefs. What’s more? You may experience a manatee visit on our docks! Have a blast observing these gentle Florida creatures. Your snorkel gear is provided for free.


Scuba Diving

Key Largo is the Diving Capital of the World. We have some of the best diving spots that you shouldn’t miss, from great coral reefs to sunken WW2 ships, this is a diving paradise! Key Largo Cottages has a Dive and Stay Package for divers out there. Check our rates here.



For something idyllic and relaxing you can go fishing right on our docks with the fishing gear that we provide. Enjoy a good catch with a great sunset view while barbequing up the night’s dinner at our water side tiki hut.



We have bicycles on site that you can use for free. Key Largo is a bicycle friendly place where you can explore nearby attractions, parks, and cycling trails. So get a good morning exercise in Key Largo, cycle around, breath fresh air, explore…
