Father's Day 2023 in the Florida Keys

June 12, 2023

Father's Day is almost here! Looking for the perfect way to celebrate Dad? Bring him to the Florida Keys! Here are a few of the ways that you can enjoy Father's Day around the Keys. 


Father's Day Weekend Events

Father's Day Dolphin Derby: The 37th annual Father's Day Dolphin Derby will take place June 16-17, 2023 in Marathon. If Dad's a fisherman, then he'll love this chance to reel in dolphin (aka mahi mahi) competitively! Four anglers will win cash prizes. 

VFW Fishing Tournament: The 11th annual VFW Fishing Tournament will take place June 16-18, 2023 in Key West. This family-oriented event offers cash prizes for the heaviest fish from five different species. Anglers can also win cash prizes in seven different categories. 

Hops for Pops: On June 18, 2023, Islamorada Brewing and Pelican Cove are teaming up to offer Hops for Pops. When you purchase a bucket of eco-bio balls for the beach driving range, you'll get a free beer tasting. It's perfect for Fathers Day! 


Other Activities 

Fishing: The Florida Keys has great fishing year-round. You don't have to compete in a tournament to enjoy it! Hire a fishing guide or bring your fly rod to a riverbank and see what you find. Alternatively, you could try deep sea fishing.

Relax on the Beach: Take Dad to one of the Keys' beautiful beaches for a day of fun in the sun. The whole family will love spending time by the water! 

Golfing: Whether Dad likes tackling sprawling golf courses or playing mini golf with the family, there's a place for him to tee off in the Keys! 

Visit a Museum: The Keys have many small, locally-focused museums that are perfect for families looking to learn about the history, animals, or other interesting aspects of the Keys.

What are you doing this Father's Day? Why not come to the Keys?! Plan your trip today!
