Fishing and Boating

Stuart is known as the "Sailfish Capital of the World," making deep sea fishing a popular activity in this beachside town. But fishing in the Atlantic Ocean is not the only activity residents and visitors enjoy. Fishing is permitted inland on the Indian River Lagoon and St. Lucie River. Launch your boat or fish from the pier at a Stuart park — the choice is yours!


While the Stuart area features many private golf course communities — which offer homes on the golf course — there are public access golf courses available for tee times. Play your choice of challenging fairways on the Martin County Golf Course (which is part of the Florida Historic Golf Trail), The Champions Golf Club, or Martin Downs Golf Club
