Indian Key is now a state park. It is accessible only by private boat or charter boats available at nearby marinas. An observation tower, boat dock, shelter and trails are provided; however, there are no restrooms or picnic facilities.

Ranger-guided tours are available at 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., Thursday through Monday. The tour fee is $1 per person. Children under 6 are admitted free of charge.
Tour boat service available. For reservations please call (305) 664-9814 or 664-4196. Tour boat departs 1/2-hour before listed tour times.

Book a guided walking tour at the MM 78.5 boat ramp. 305-664-4815.

The official address is:
Indian Key State Historic Site
P.O. Box 1052
Islamorada, Florida 33036

The main site however is on Long Key and they no longer handle tours etc. as the park service no longer runs a boat out to Indian Key. So calling there won't help any as they have no information. You have to call the private marina on Matecombe Key.

Directions: Indian Key is located on the ocean side of U.S. 1 at M.M. 78.5.
