We chose John Pennekamp for the water activities and were not disapppointed. The weather was a little colder than normal, but we had a great time regardless. The dive shop staff was great as we explained it was our first ocean dive. They told us to wait because of the weather, (the surf was a bit choppy) and it payed off, we had 2 fantastic dives at Molasses Reef. The crew was very knowledgable and enthusicastic, and very paitent with me as I was nervous. I was also able to snorkle and highly recommend it. We also took the glass bottom boat tour in the morning to avoid a crowed boat and the staff there was equally as knowledgeable and very enthusiastic. Well worth the trip. Not to mention the kayaking, which we also did.
We stayed at the campground and enjoyed it very much. Someone else pointed out the road noise, yes you do hear it, but we were so tired from enjoying the fresh air and sun, we slept like rocks. Another camper pointed out the bike path outside the campground and it was a great ride. If you're going to just hang out on the beach remember its the Keys, I don't think beaches is what they're known for. We did spend the afternoon hanging out on Cannon Beach and saw a Manatee. My family and I had a great expierence and recommend it.
