Boating & Fishing SailFish Point grey Icon

Life on the Water around Sailfish Point

An abundance of shoreline and natural beauty are why generations of families from around the globe call Florida’s Treasure Coast home. Miles of waterways invite exploration of diverse ecosystems and provide sights like unique native botanicals and wildlife.

An Angler’s Dream

If fishing is a passion, anglers have direct access to a wide world of deep water, reef, trolling, and drop fishing. With the meeting of the Intracoastal Waterway, the Indian River, and the Atlantic Ocean, Martin County is a renowned fishing mecca. The area’s waters are teeming with mahi mahi, wahoo, kingfish, tarpon, bonefish, snook, redfish, sea trout, and most famously, the sailfish. Its abundant local presence has led to Stuart’s designation as the “Sailfish Capital of the World.”

Set Course for the Bahamas

If you decide to try your chances elsewhere, a quick run to the West End, Bahamas gets you into the heart of the islands. Just 55 miles east of Sailfish Point’s Marina, even more marlin, mahi, wahoo, and yellowfin tuna can be found around the islands. Should you try for the shallows and surrounding reefs, you might find a snook, permit, bonefish, snapper, or grouper on the other end of your line.

Aqua Sports Galore

The local waterways are ideal for early morning boat rides and evening cocktail cruises with friends. While many residents of the Treasure Coast spend their weekends motor boating, a growing number have found their love for stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, and sailing. The saltwater flats between the Intracoastal Waterway and Hutchinson Island are protected by a series of spoil islands, creating a safe environment for exploring.
