20 Best Outdoor Vacations for Firefighters
14. Scuba Diving (or Snorkeling) the Florida Keys
Just off the coast of Florida lie The Florida Keys, a cluster of 1,700 islands and the longest living reef in the Western Hemisphere. The Keys offer calm seas and a kaleidoscope of bizarre shapes and colors, sea creatures from sharks to marlins, breathtaking coral formations and over 500 wrecks to explore, including Spanish galleons and remnants of the Civil War. With waters this clear, you can see up to 120 feet ahead of you, so it’s no wonder divers come from all over the world to explore this underwater paradise. Tip:
For a more off-the-beaten path diving experience, explore the Lower Keys’
5.3 nautical miles of marine life and coral reef.
