Wreck Diving in Florida Keys
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.
