Diving Capital of the World!
The Florida Keys are home to the only living coral barrier reef in North America, offering some of the best scuba diving and snorkeling in the United States. Frequently called “The American Caribbean”, with the warm waters of the Gulf Stream just offshore, there is an abundance of beautiful reef fish, corals, sponges and wrecks just teeming with fish.
You can find a dive for just about everyone, from shallow reef trips in 10’ of water, to 120’ wreck dives. The visibility is good, the water is warm, and the corals and fish are spectacular! Here in Key Largo is the famous protected marine park, John Pennekamp, known for its incredible variety of marine life; an excellent place for novice divers as well as seasoned ones and, of course, photographers!
On any given day you will see an amazing assortment of tropical fish, nurse sharks, rays, and moray eels. Don't forget the fabulous lobsters to be found during season! A top priority in the Keys is the preservation of our reefs so they can be enjoyed for many years to come, so please take care.
