This is a good spot to buy live bait and supplies. They have a large selection of products for every type of Keys fishing. Fresh live bait got us on some great fish.

Hi, I think you confused us with a snorkeling company. We are The Tackle Box, we see Fishing Bait and Tackle, clothing, etc. I would contact spirit snorkeling in Marathon for more information. Thanks
