Wreck Diving in Florida Keys
Sunny and warm year-round, the Keys offer a variety of ocean charter excursions, including glass-bottom boat and shark sighting trips, stand-up paddleboarding, and scuba diving. But wreck-diving Spiegel Grove and the USNS Vandenberg remain the popular favorites. Encounter native marine life like porpoises and sea turtles on an eco-friendly Dolphin Safari, which provides free wetsuits and hot chocolate in the winter if the water temp dips too low (which it rarely does).
Stay: Hawks Cay (from $219) has an expanded kids program with a pool and pirate ship, an excursion camp for teens, scavenger hunts, and its own saltwater lagoon.
