Our goal is to teach children the basics of fishing skills, tackle, responsible catch and release practices, knot tying, and safety.

Hook Kids on Fishing !!!
The Florida Keys Ocean Festival is centered around celebrating our one of a kind local marine environment in the Florida Keys and educating the public on the best ways to make sure it's healthy and vibrant for many years to come.
Kids are the key to our future so showing them how to enjoy the benefits of our oceans and local waters while teaching them to respect all the living creatures in them is a positive step towards a brighter future for our environment.
Donations to Mote Marine Laboratory are encouraged to help this fishing program reach out to more children in the future. Fill out the registration form below and a confirmation of your registration will be emailed back to you.
