Owner description: If you're in the waters of the Florida Keys, chances are you are in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. This sanctuary protects 2,900 square nautical miles of waters surrounding the Florida Keys and supports one of the most diverse assemblages of underwater plants and animals in North America. Although best known for is coral reefs, the shallow nearshore waters contain interconnecting marine habitats that include fringing mangroves, seagrass meadows, hardbottom regions, patch reefs, and bank reefs. This complex marine ecosystem is the foundation for the tourism and commercial fishing-based economies that are so important to the State of Florida. Visitors to the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary can enjoy recreational activities including diving, snorkeling, kayaking, and fishing in appropriate zones.

This is among the best diving America has to offer, in my opinion. Living coral formations, the abundance of marine life and species, excellent visibility (40-60 ft), water temp (75-82), fabulous dive shops with knowledgeable staff. A dive or snorkel at this reef should be on everyone's bucket list, in my opinion.
