Key Largo Snorkeling

One of the largest islands in the Florida Keys is Key Largo. It is the self-proclaimed “Diving Capital of the World” and that reputation certainly extends to Key Largo snorkeling. The blue waters of the Florida Keys have become a major focus for the protection of underwater resources and that movement found its beginning in Key Largo. The conservation efforts become obvious to those snorkeling in Key Largo because the reefs do not show the same signs of damage.

Key Largo snorkeling holds claim to the first underwater state park, the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. All fishing is prohibited, and the ocean life here are noted for being particularly comfortable with scuba divers and snorkelers. Snorkeling tours are available at John Pennekamp park starting at about $29 for 2.5 hours. An underwater site known as “The Elbow” is one of the best for snorkeling in Key Largo. Underwater photography is excellent here, and among the diverse marine animals to be viewed are friendly moray eels. A spot for snorkeling in Key Largo that is particularly famous is at the Key Largo Dry Rocks. Here snorkelers can view the “Christ of the Deep” statue, a bronze statue sunk about 25 feet into the water.
