We drove down from Key largo (hilton) - about a 30 min drive (longer than i thought - sunday traffic!)
We only wanted to feed the tarpon and be on our way - back to our hotel to lay in the sun and relax....
we went Sunday AM and just beat the crowd - i walked right in gave the man $5 (admission for two and a bucket of fish!)
there was plenty of room on the docks - i was told NOT to feed the pelicans as they can bite and become agressive - but, they are my favorite sea bird - so I eventually had to throw them a few fishies too! When they open their mouths i could not beleive how big their BEAKS are! YIKES!!
You can lay down on the dock and basically hold your arm out so the fish is literally only a foot from the water and the tarpon will JUMP out and grab the fish - this all happens so quickly you dont' even know what made the splash!
The Tarpon are huge - 3 to4 feet i guess!
I had fun and would recommend for a quick stop on your way to somewhere.
there is also a bar/restaurant next door and a little flea market - we did not go to either.
this place is HARD to find people - ASK for specific directions - it is NOT well marked.
