The Diving Capital of the World
The welcoming island of the Florida Keys is Key Largo, known as the "Diving Capital of the World" with some of the best diving and snorkelling along the colorful reefs and wrecks of the Florida Keys.
The main attraction in Key Largo is the John Pennekamp Coral Reef Park, the first underwater park in the US, which attracts divers from around the world. With 70 nautical miles of mangrove swamps, coral reefs and marine life, there are many activities for visitors to enjoy. Explore Speigel Grove, the beginning of the Florida Keys 100 mile long shipwreck trail, a military ship sunk to create artificial reefs. The Statue of Christ of the Abyss, The Elbow, French Reef and Grecian Rocks are just a few of the world famous dive sites. Dive packages are available supplying everything needed for a spectacular day underwater and the Visitor Center hosts an educational saltwater aquarium. If you prefer to stay dry, adventure the waters by glass bottom boat to experience the incredible underwater sea life.
The sandy beaches of Sandspur and Caloosa Beach are a wonderful way to spend the day with shady coconut trees, warm water, swimming, kayaking and snorkelling. A perfect day out for the family.
Key Largo is not just a diving destination. The Harry Harris Park and Key Largo Hammocks State Botanical Site shows you the beauty and nature of the Keys. Close by is the Everglades National Park, a 1.5 million acre ecosystem featuring airboat rides and safaris. Explore the back country by kayak or paddle board.
Nothing beats a Key Largo sunset than a sunset cruise or an ocean side dinner. Head to Downtown Key Largo for a laid back evening of happy hours, local entertainment and live music.
