On Location with Offshore Predators.
Media Mark was On Location with Offshore Predators in the Florida Keys this week, fishing and filming shark tagging with four dedicated NOAA volunteers, whose sole mission is to study and track shark populations and migrations. What a great experience. Fun and relaxing. Yes relaxing!
OSP is currently producing its first episodes, and Media Mark is pleased to be the production company of choice for this new and unique fishing show. However this post is not about OSP or its upcoming Offshore Predator fishing show.
I just want to share a little bit of paradise enjoying the simple pleasures in life. Such as the Florida Keys, and it’s incredibly clear and clean waters of the Atlantic Ocean, with a little R&R style courtesy of Postcard Inn & Resort in Islamorada Key Florida.
I’m not able to share any shark tagging footage at this time…
…but if you subscribe here we’ll be sure you’re updated as to when the first show will be broadcast. Fun stuff for fishermen and conservation minded folk who enjoy our wonderful oceans, with all its creatures, even the scary and not so nice ones. Stay tuned right here.

This week on location with Offshore Predators I was fortunate to enjoy more of the Florida Keys than I have in the past. I’ve been scuba diving in Key Largo and kayaking in Key Biscayne, and a few other smaller Keys off the coast of Miami. I have always told myself I need to go further south, with of course Key West being the final destination. And I’ll get there soon enough, but my destination this week was Islamorada Key.
If you haven’t spent any time in the Florida Keys…
…stop bothering with other resort destinations and get your butts to the Keys!
The most amazing clear blue waters I have ever encountered are right here in the good ole US of A. No passport required! With little outside influences, disturbances, politics, cares or worries! Leave it all behind in the Florida Keys. Have a drink or read a book poolside. Swim with dolphins and Manatees. Sleep in a hammock on the beach, or on the water, under the shade of a thousand island umbrella canopies. Whatever!
Any time in, on or under the water in the Keys is a great way to relax!
R&R has never felt as good as it does in the Keys. There is something in this air and water that screams R&R. The Keys just radiate rest and relaxation! With constant trade winds blowing in low temps, or at least comfortable temperatures, summer time in the Keys means slow business, fewer crowds and discount prices at many resorts, activities, rentals, and charters. You can find some great values in the Keys in the summer.
Although thunderstorms are quite common in the Keys in the summer, don’t despair, as they push in cooler air and come and go like the proverbial pop song on prime time radio. Speaking of music, Jimmy Buffett is still the primary genre down here, much to my content! And if you’re not a Buffett fan, live music venues are as varied as the fishing.
If you think it’s too hot to visit Florida in the summer you have not visited the Florida Keys. Constant winds cooled temps to a moderate 80 degrees during my two days on Islamorada Key. This felt like a different Florida compared to my home in Delray Beach.
If drifting away on the sands of a new day amongst relaxing melodies with Jimmy Buffett is not your style, try channeling something a little more adventurous and rock and rolling. While on location with Offshore Predators I found countless activities available to keep even the slowest land turtles interested and active in this paradise which is the Florida Keys.
While in Islamorada Key filming shark tagging adventures, I experienced quality relaxation at its finest. Unencumbered with thoughts of deadlines and production schedules. And I was working! Work of this sort is relaxing to me. Location is everything!
But if this sort of relaxation is not your cup of tea, and you would rather channel up some quality television adventures watching shark fishing and tagging episodes, be sure to tune in for the first broadcast of Offshore Predators coming soon to a channel near you…
Thank you for reading. See you all again soon.
