Dive Resorts in the Florida Keys

Dive Resorts in the Florida Keys
The Florida Keys offer 120 miles of islands that are home to the only living-coral barrier reef in the United States. The marine life that runs the entire length of the islands also runs about 5 miles offshore. Most dive sites are outfitted with mooring buoys to save the reef from anchors, which makes it easy for boaters to tie off. Most dive sites are a brief boat ride from any islands, where you can find dozens of professional dive operators ready to accommodate to you.
