Snorkeling in the Florida Keys!

“Want to explore an underwater world?” Then why not give snorkeling a try!

An accessible aquatic activity for the entire family.

Snorkeling is a simple and fun activity that can easily be enjoyed by the whole family – children, parents and even grandparents! All that’s required is that snorkelers must know how to swim and be moderately comfortable in the water. A few accessories, such as buoys, inflatable noodles and even a vest can provide the youngest children with some extra buoyancy, so that they won’t get tired as quickly and will be able to enjoy the water for a longer period of time.

The Florida Keys are one of the best spots for snorkeling in the continental United States. It boasts the third-longest barrier reef in the world, spanning from Biscayne National Park to Marquesas Key. There are plenty of artificial and natural coral reefs in the Florida Keys that makes for a great destination for snorkelers and divers of every level.
