NEW – Park Pass Information! In 2019 Congress changed the rules on National Park entrance fees for all National Parks. On most Islamorada backcountry fishing charters, we will venture into the Everglades National Park and per the new access rules, all adults on board will need to have a National Park pass. Kids under 16 do not need a pass. If you or anyone in your group has the America the Beautiful Annual Pass, Senior Pass, Access Pass, Military Pass or the Everglades Park Pass you are already covered for entrance into the Park. Note: An Annual Pass includes the pass holder + 3 guests. Below are two sites for more info. These should be purchased on the day of your trip.
