Lobster Tickling

You can go fishing from the dock, swim in the Gulf, or go diving to see the marine life. One thing you must do is go lobster tickling. This involves diving to find your lobster beneath a stone or behind waving marine grasses. You’ll extend a lobster tickling stick to extract him from his hiding place. Swoop him up with a net, and you’ve caught dinner. Now you just need a little butter and a salad.

Preparing them in the kitchen of your luxury vacation home rentals in Marathon, FL, is something of which you’ll want to get pictures, for sure, along with the house and other aspects of your Florida Keys vacation.
