We love our home so much that we've built a safe living aquarium in our lagoon area. It's taken since 1970's we feed our fish and NO there are NO sharks or harmful sea-life. Just beautiful sites under the water. At the beach area is a zero entry and by the time you're in the lagoon area it's about 3.5 -4 feet. You have to swim out fairly far to get to 10 feet. We encourage everyone SAFETY first when you move past our estate perimeter and grounds. Always life jackets on when in Kayaks. Safety ;). So this is why we say the following. We're part of the Marine Sanctuary to save our lovely sea-life. Many guests come to visit and want to fish of the docks however we kindly ask you to join us in understanding we don't permit fishing because we want to have amazing sea-life for the next generations. And too... our county has created many new public fishing areas for visitors to the keys to fish. I also offer a wonderful list of guides for both deep sea and back country. Thank you for protecting our sea-life for future : )
