Robbie's Tarpon Feed

If you go to the dock, head straight for the netted areas to feed the fish. There are holes large enough to put your hand through to feed them, and the net keeps the pelicans away. Also, beware of the pelicans -- they're aggressive and will sneak up behind you to steal the bait!

Still fun. Feed the giant fish, not the sneaky pelicans. A man at the dock helps keep the pelicans away from the bait. $1 admission and $3 per bucket of fish.

Robbie's Tarpon Feed is definitely worth a stop if you're in the Keys. Prices have gone up a tad since last report, but it's a good time.

The coolest place in the Keys! Hundreds of huge wild tarpon swimming around the docks! And you can buy a bucket of bait to feed them and watch them go crazy after the food!

Robbie's of Islamorada, a must for anyone visiting the Florida Keys. For one dollar, you walk out on the pier and feed the tarpon. Look for the pelican obsessed Australian sheperd; he leaps the boats in his ever unsuccessful quest to capture a pelican. A bucket of 10 or 12 bait fish to feed the dozens of 4 to 7 feet long tarpon costs 2 bucks and is well worth it.
