The Best of NileGuide
Work out, have fun and cool off. Key West's water sports lets you have all-day fun-in-the-sun-without even breaking a sweat.
The Keys' combination of vivid coral reefs teeming with exotic sea creatures and a wealth of first-rate snorkel/dive operators offers a ready-made vacation paradise for those who can't wait to get into the water and start exploring.
But for visitors who desire firsthand experience of the marine environment, all that is needed is some swimming skill, the appropriate equipment and a boat ride to an offshore coral reef.
Whether visitors indulge in scuba or snorkel, the Florida Keys provide spectacular rewards in brilliant colors, breathtaking scenery and the exhilaration of an encounter with nature's wonders. To maintain the Keys' status as the world's most popular dive destination, the region's offshore environment has been the focus of conservation efforts for more than a generation.
The Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, established in 1990, encompasses the coastal waters of the entire island chain from northernmost Key Largo south to the Dry Tortugas.
Not to mention, the warm, nutrient-rich waters from the Caribbean Basin pour into the Straits of Florida, combining with water flowing out of the shallow-water nurseries of the Everglades and Florida Bay to create a profuse food chain. That in turn sustains massive amounts of bait fish which attract abundant stocks of game fish to the Keys. Key West attracts world-class anglers who want to catch (and release!) world-class fish.
So, get on the water and in the water, to thoroughly enjoy this southernmost island in the chain.
