We stayed at the Hyatt across the street and needed insect repellant. The owner and his son were out front watching the Coast Guard's morning flag raising. Great family business, and so helpful! Enjoyed talking to them!

Chris and his wife are both great people. There prices are great even for the keys. He has a lot of local knowledge and makes his own baits. He is the only tackle store I go to in Marathon.

Small Mom and Pop shops are where I like to shop and the Tackle Box is one of those. Store was clean, organized, and well stocked. The young lady behind the counter was friendly and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend supporting this business.

Hi, I think you confused us with a snorkeling company. We are The Tackle Box, we see Fishing Bait and Tackle, clothing, etc. I would contact spirit snorkeling in Marathon for more information. Thanks
