 In Aventura

tropical BBQ - TALK Students at Aventura Haulover Park and Marina,  close to TALK Aventura, is one of the most popular launching points for deep-sea fishing in South Florida. Located on the infamous Collins Avenue of Miami Beach, Haulover Park – with its picturesque marina – is right next to tennis courts, a golf course, restaurant, and tons of green space.

Haulover Park is one of two public beach parks operated by Miami-Dade County. This 177- acre park with 1.4 miles of beach front as acquired starting as early as “1935 and was then Dade County’s fourth major park”. The land that the park now sits on previously contained a “Lighthouse Restaurant, a trailer and small refreshment stand, and charter boat piers”. The Dade County Commission procured the beach front property in 1940 following a lobbying effort for a $2 million municipal bond ($32.8 million, adjusted for current inflation) by then County Commissioner Charles H. Crandon for the purchases of northern Key Biscayne (what later would become Crandon Park) and the area just north of Baker’s Haulover Cut which was then called North Beach.

A popular tourist attraction at the marina, The Kelley Fleet, was created in 1957 by Capt. George Kelley. His goal was to give the public a safe, low-cost way to enjoy deep-sea fishing. Elizabeth Bercaw and her students from TALK in Aventura enjoyed a day in the sun while touring Kelley’s Fleet. After learning about various fish found in Florida waters, students grilled Red Snapper at Haulover Beach. Check out the photos below!
