"Exploring the diverse underwater life and water activities"

This was the first underwater park in the US. It covers coral reefs, seagrass beds and mangrove swamps with vibrant marine life. There are glass-bottom boat tours available here, which was a spectacular experience for all of us. Some of our friends enjoyed snorkeling and we joined them for kayaking too. A great place for family activities like these.

John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park

John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park is a Florida State Park located on Key Largo in Florida, and includes approximately 70 nautical square miles of adjacent Atlantic Ocean waters. It was the first underwater park in the United States. The park was added to the National Register of Historic Places on April 14, 1972. The primary attractions of the park are the coral reefs and their associated marine life.

In Fiscal Year 2004 the park had more than a million visitors, making it the most popular park in the Florida State Parks system. The Florida Keys and the Flower Garden Banks in the Gulf of Mexico off the Texas coast are the only living coral reef formations in the continental United States.
