Key Largo

Key Largo – The Dive Capital of The World

Key Largo, called “the first of the Florida Keys,” because of its northernmost location along the Florida Keys chain, is an hour's drive from South Florida's two major airports. Yet it is a world away.

Home to two state parks, a national park, and a national marine sanctuary, Key Largo boasts some of the most fascinating botanical scenery in the state. John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, opened America's first underseas park. Pennekamp is home to the snorkeling, boating, kayaking and swimming, and the famous Christ of the Abyss underwater statue.

Explore Key Largo's Dagny Johnson Key Largo Hammock Botanical State Park, Everglades National Park and all the underwater delights of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. A host of eco-tourism and dive-snorkel services are ready to help you discover the natural wonders of Key Largo. Key Largo is situated between the watery wilderness of the Everglades National Park to the west and the fish-covered coral formations of North America's only living coral barrier reef to the east.

Six miles offshore in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, you will find the wreck of the Spiegel Grove, a 510-foot Navy ship intentionally scuttled in June 2002 as the backbone for a new coral reef.

Locals consider their home the Diving Capital of the World but the island is nearly as famous as a sport fishing destination. You can go after sailfish offshore, bonefish along the Atlantic shallows, or redfish and tarpon in Florida Bay.

Key Largo's proximity to the Everglades makes it a premier destination for kayakers, birders and other eco-tourists. All this beauty, not to mention the island's rich history, has inspired a vibrant community of artists who show their work at several local galleries.
