Here in the Florida Keys, it’s all about the water. Whether you’re catching an oceanside breeze, chilling by the Bay or quietly enjoying one of our stately canals, just being around water can make you feel happier.
But to get the most out of the magical marine environments of our Florida Keys, you really have to get out on the water – or better yet, in it! These are the most popular ways to get wet around here:
It’s really all you need to start to appreciate the diversity of fish life and coral just offshore. The reefs within John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, the country’s first undersea park, as well as the wider Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary are teeming with fish, and the iconic underwater statue, the Christ of the Abyss, is a one-of-a-kind sight.
There’s nothing like breathing underwater, and the same extensive reef system that’s so fun for snorkeling is full of relatively shallow dive sites that are ideal for students, newer divers or those refreshing their skills. Historic shipwrecks are thrilling to explore for adventurous and experienced divers. Living here means you can take advantage of days with the best weather, sea conditions and visibility. Get to know a local reef in intimate detail by diving it regularly, advance to a new dive certification level, hunt for your lobster dinner, or take up a new hobby like underwater photography and fish identification.
If you only want get your feet wet, then hanging out at a sandbar with fellow boaters on sunny afternoon may be more your style. Rather be on your own? There are countless small uninhabited islands in bay waters to explore by boat, kayak or paddle board.
The great thing about living in the Keys is that these activities are easily accessible with your own boat, a group trip, or a private charter.
