Ever been somewhere and feel there's something very important you have to do? Maybe it's fishing or scuba diving or nothing at all. The subtropical ambiance of the Kon Tiki Resort is that kind of place. You can enjoy swimming, fishing, diving, snorkeling and boating all year round. Abundant wildlife in a subtropical waterfront setting makes a great family picnic. You'll be in paradise while soaking up the sun next to our heated freshwater pool or on the sandy beach of our private lagoon. In 1968 Kon Tiki Resort began its' adventure as a fishing camp, owned by a single family and established as a place to embark on an exciting day of deep sea or back water fishing and a comfortable haven to return to at the end of the day. Named for the Kon Tiki expedition, our sign is fashioned after the sail on the famous balsa wood raft that crossed the seas many years ago. Alot has changed at Kon Tiki over the last thirty-six years, but one thing stays the same: we're a great place to begin and end your Florida Keys adventure, even if you get no further than one of our hammocks.
You can enjoy swimming, fishing, diving, snorkeling and boating all year round. Lush tropical landscape can be enjoyed throughout the property. For those guests who bring their boat, our deep-water dockage and boat ramp is right on Florida Bay. Relax in our freshwater, heated pool or beside our private grotto that is stocked with game fish, tarpon and tropical fish. We invite our guests to swim with these friendly fish, feed them or take pictures but you can't fish for our fish.
