Someone told me their son is a Marine working in Florida (Active duty) I can not think what base he would be on?

Most likely NAS Jacksonville (Lax Jax), NAS Pensacola, or Blount Island.  But there are more detachments on other bases as I found out doing onsites.

When I was stationed at MCAS Beaufort, SC, we had to send/augment a Marine Calibrator to Marine Corps Blount Island Command, Jacksonville, Florida for a six month deployment to support the Maritime Prepositioning Ships program. I think sometime later the Marine Corps made it a permanent duty station assignment for the calibration MOS.

When I did onsites on Blount Island at a Defense/Aersospace company I found it amusing to watch Marines in formation about to go PT on a blazing hot day!  Brought back some memories.  I also had a friend I went through GCAMS in Biloxi with that was stationed at Blount Island at the time.  Since it was a multi day onsite we were fortunate to be able to meet him for dinner and drinks one night.  He told me that he was really just a calibration coordinator there.  They were sending all their equipment to NAS Jacksonville for calibration.  This was 6-7 years ago.  Glad I never got stuck at a duty station that didn't have calibration standards to work with!
