WELCOME TO DUCK KEY
A tropical island, quintessentially located half way between Key Largo and Key West and connected by its own bridge to Overseas Highway, Duck Key rests serenely between the blue green waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. Duck Key residents enjoy the idyllic ‘island life’ with all the perks imaginable.
Salt water enthusiasts, second home owners, vacationers

Boating, fishing, swimming, diving and paddle boarding are just a handful of the every day past times that Duck Key residents and Florida Keys vacation home guests enjoy from sun up to sun down.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Neighborhood feel, fishing vibe, luxury resort and spa on the island
Comprised of ﬁve separate islands joined by beautiful Venetian bridges, Duck Key’s 300 acres have approximately 6 miles of water frontage, including 1 1/2 miles of ocean frontage, 1 1/8 miles of harbor frontage, and the remainder along deep waterways navigable to the sea. The rare, crystal-clear canals are free ﬂowing and home to many dolphins and manatees. A natural and low breakwater wall protects the entire oceanfront of Duck Key and forms a 85-foot lagoon leading to the yacht harbor and main channel. Residents on the island walk and ride their bicycles to the restaurants and water sport rentals. Golf carts are another popular way to get around the island.
