Speckled Trout Marina continues a legacy of old Florida
Speckled Trout Marina is a one hundred year old fishing wharf whose waters were once adorned with countless fishnets, shrimp boats, and fishermen whom plied their trade. To this day, the marina's deep waters, protection by barrier islands, and direct access to the Gulf of Mexico continue to attract fishermen and beach-goers to the oldest marina in Ozona.
The Marina is located on the Gulf of Mexico in the quaint Village of Ozona, Florida. This small, homey town is nestled between the beautiful beaches of Clearwater and the historic Greek abode of Tarpon Springs. Since founded, the marina's location has given fishermen prime access to the intracoastal waterways. These waterways adjoin to the alluring islands of Honeymoon and Caladesi. For this reason, Speckled Trout Marina has long provided its customers with some of the world's best fishing and finest beaches.
In the year of 2001, the marina was purchased by the family of John J. Bennett. The many investments and constant renovations by the family have added immensely to making the marina what it is today. Checkout this link to Speckled Trout's past: Ozona History
