Little Basin is a semi-enclosed body of water, just off the Florida Keys Inside (Florida Bay) route. Its shores are overlooked by World Wide Sportsman – Bayside Marina, and several other smaller facilities. IN addition to “Ma’s Fish Camp,” listed below, also give Islamorada Fish Company a try, just next to WWS. GREAT grouper sandwiches and dockside dining!
Little Basin is a nice anchorage if you don’t draw too much. I was able to hug the channel with a wing keel catalina drawing 4 feet. Stay close to the channel. Across the street is a great little restaurant. Ma’s Fish Camp. Great Bahamian Conch Chowder and fish dip. I am a snob for both and they have some of the best of both in the keys. The Key Lime pie is great and they will also make a salad and put grilled fish on it for you. North about one block up the street is the Keys Hurricane Memorial Park which is worth a visit for the history. Also a decent package store.
