Marathon gets set for Florida Keys mini lobster season this July
Calling all lobster lovers! If you’re planning a vacation in the Florida Keys at the end of July, you’ll be in for a treat when mini lobster season hits the waters around Marathon.
Lasting for two days on July 29th and 30th, mini lobster season brings together a host of lobster hunters, all clawing their way through the coastal waters surrounding the Keys to catch the first fresh lobster of the season. It’s a long-awaited time of year when the ocean is teeming with the popular crustacean because lobsters just love to live in warmer temperatures. So, if you’re after the freshest and tastiest lobster or you’ve yet to sample this culinary delight in the Keys, your taste buds will be tingling come the end of July.
Florida Keys lobsters, known as spiny lobsters, don’t have claws and their meat has a slightly chewy sweetness. The most popular way to enjoy lobster in the Keys is to order it grilled with melted butter or steamed and served with Cuban black beans and yellow rice. For the ultimate lobster indulgence, savor it while watching the beautiful Marathon sunset with a refreshing cocktail in hand.
