You’ve cleared away the wrapping paper and are dreading the inevitable pine needle sweep that must follow taking down the Christmas tree. But when all is said and done, did you get everything you wanted for Christmas?

End of the world…

In case the world really does end tonight, we’re happy you chose to spend your last day on earth here with us at Tranquility Bay Resort.

So join us on the beach tonight, and if the world decides to keep on spinning– well, we’ll see you there tomorrow night as well.

What a smile…

One of our employees here at Tranquility Bay Beach House Resort wanted to share this photo of a toothy barracuda that he caught (and released!) recently.

We spoke to you yesterday about what a fun fight these guys put up in the water, but we also love staring into their terrifying mouths after we’ve reeled them in — look at those teeth!

We hope you get to take advantage of the beautiful warm weather on this weekend’s forecast. Whether you’re out battling your own barracuda, helping your kids build a sandcastle down by the ocean or simply lazing by the pools here at Tranquility Bay, we wish you a relaxing, happy weekend!

Mark your calendars: the Lighted Boat Parade is coming!

For more than fifteen years Middle Keys visitors and residents have enjoyed a holiday tradition that is truly magical: we’re talking, of course, about the Lighted Boat Parade at Boot Key Harbor! In just three days– mark your calendars, this  Saturday you won’t want to miss the parade!– boats of all sizes and shapes will don their finest lighted finery and parade through the harbor in a festival of twinkling merriment. (Great viewing points include Lazy Days South, the Marathon Marina, Sombrero Dockside Lounge and Burdine’s Waterfront…all just short car rides away from our own Marathon hotel.)
This event starts at dusk, near 5 p.m, and is fun for the whole family. So grab the kids this Saturday and head on over to watch the boats go by! You’ll be glad you did.
For more information, email CapnGreg@BootKeyHarbor.com

Marathon Community Theater presents: Nana’s Naughty Knickers

There’s  big event coming this week and we know you can’t wait to attend.

No, not that big event.

We’re talking about one with a little less turkey and more… naughty grandmothers.

Specifically: The Marathon Community Theatre’s imminent show, Nana’s Naughty Knickers, opening the 23rd of November.

Bring the family to this hilarious play which follows one wide-eyed granddaughter and her lingerie selling, laughter inducing grandmother– who just happens to be running an illegal lingerie business out of her apartment. Root for Nana as she avoids eviction (and arrest!) and fall in love right alongside her granddaughter, Bridget, whose police officer love interest threatens to undo the whole operation!

This hysterical romp is limited to just a few performances, so get your tickets now before they’re all sold out. For more information, visit http://www.marathontheater.org/ or call the box office at 305-743-0994. Remember: our front desk agents here at Tranquility Bay are always happy to assist you in booking any activities around Marathon that you or your family might want to attend. Just swing by the front desk and let us know!

Weekend Weather Report for Marathon


When you live someplace tropical, anything less than 85 degrees can feel a little chilly. This weekend, we’re throwing on a cozy sweater before we head out on the water. It appears that winter may have finally arrived here in the Keys– or at least, the later days of autumn. In any case, the sweltering temperatures we felt a few weeks ago have been replaced with cooler, crisper weather that makes us want to go exploring outside (and by exploring, we mean fishing. Definitely.)

The forecast for this weekend looks good, with party cloudy skies throughout and temperatures in the mid-to-high 70’s range. Sunday looks to be the hottest, so if you’re deciding on which day might be best for lazing by the pool or beach, that’s our pick.

Winds are expected to stay in their currently gusty state, with gusts of up to 20mph expected by Sunday. (Perhaps not the best weekend to go sailing if you’re not a bit adventurous.)

As always, stop by the front desk at Tranquility Bay if you need suggestions for fun activities for you and your family.

Here’s the weather roundup:
