The Race Club Islamorada
About Islamorada

Islamorada, Spanish for “Island Home,” is the name for these four islands in the Florida Keys. A protective chain of offshore reefs provides the quiet waters and gentle waves that surround the islands. The abundant marine life of those reefs and the shallow waters surrounding these islands is represented by the flashing brilliance of a leaping tarpon. The coconut palm represents the warm welcome offered to those who, like the coconut palm itself, have come from other places to make this their new island home.

Our dive store staff is comprised of three PADI Course Directors, two PADI Master Instructors and crew members with Divemaster and Instructor ratings. Visit www.floridakeysdivectr.com.

Rental Properties
There are some rentals on the island that you can find on airbnb.com or vrbo.com, but it’s not as many as other places. Hotels are usually the way to go, but we do recommend an internet search for rental properties. If you are coming to stay for a month or longer, then we definitely recommend looking for a rental property. Let us know and we can recommend a real estate friend of ours that can help you.
