Cedar Key Marina II’s shallow coastal waters provide a home not only for dozens of boats, but also Coast Guard–certified charter captains, shipwrights, and fishermen of all stripes. Captains lead charters along beaches, chasing distantly spotted dorsal fins or the echo of underwater horseplay from schools of fish. They also rent out their vessels—a collection of skiffs and pontoons—to experienced fisherfolk looking to conduct their own four- to eight-hour excursions. Boat owners can rent dock space to safely moor their vessels, allowing the marina’s technicians to perform maintenance and repairs while they are docked.
