Things To Do
The moment you leave the mainland and cross into Key Largo, you'll want to kick off your shoes and put your bathing suit on and that's just the perfect attire, because Key Largo is the Diving Capital of the World. America's most dazzling underwater parks and reefs are waiting for you here. From John Pennekamp State Park and the National Marine Sanctuary, to the crystal clear waters of Molasses Reef and the underwater caves of the French Reef. You can also explore the 510' U.S.S. Spiegel Grove, which is the largest wreck ever in divable U.S. waters. And if you want to take a break from diving, we've got great, world-class offshore and backcountry fishing here too.
But there's plenty more to do onshore like a family outing to Harry Harris Park or the Jacobs Aquatic Center. A visit to Dolphins Plus or Dolphin Cove where you can actually go swimming with these friendly and highly intelligent mammals or breathtaking ventures into the Everglades, which just happens to be in our backyard.
There are also nearby towns just waiting to be discovered:
- You can journey back to a simpler time in historic Tavernier and explore railroad stations, churches, pioneer homes, a school, and family-owned stores from the turn of the century; or
- You can experience the "Sportfishing Capital of the World" first hand by fishing the crystal waters of Islamorada Tavernier , or just relax in the sand and embrace the magnificent sunsets that are simply a "must see" year-round...
