Key West Marine Park
While the very best coral reef snorkeling is found a few miles offshore from Key West proper, or at remote locations like the amazing Dry Tortugas, it is possible to have a great time underwater by snorkeling right from the shore in town. For beginners, snorkeling from shore is an ideal way to warm-up for a boat trip out to snorkel in the open water. For families, it is an easy way to let the kids have fun. And, for those who have been snorkeling offshore, loved it, and would like to get some more snorkel time in, heading out from the beach is a quick and convenient way to expand your Key West snorkeling experience. All you need are fins, mask, and snorkel – you can grab an hour or two of water time at your leisure each and every day you are in Key West if you wish.
