Hurricane IRMA Relief

Islamorada and the Florida Keys have been hit with a storm of a lifetime. The charter industry has taken a huge hit due to the events of Hurricane IRMA. Charter boats, captains, mates and their families have all been affected, some more so than others. The Islamorada Charter Boat Association's main goal is to support and protect the Islamorada charter boat industry we love so much. We have decided it is our duty to reach out and help those in the industry in a time of need. If you are in need please let us know so we can have you fill out an application to be considered for assistance. You contact us through email for an application or click the link below.
