    Places of Interest for Boating in Key Largo

    John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park

    This underwater playground needs to be at the top of your itinerary while visiting Key Largo. John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park was established in 1963 and spans over 70 nautical miles. The state park consists of reefs, mangroves, swamps, and seagrass beds. For a truly immersive experience we recommend snorkeling or diving at this site, but kayaking and paddleboarding are fun alternatives too. Fun fact, this was the very first underwater sea park in the United States.

    Seven-Mile Bridge

    The iconic seven-mile bridge connects the Middle Keys to the Lower Keys. The bridge provides a breathtaking view and is a hot spot for fishing, especially tarpon fishing. Fun fact, the seven-mile bridge was one of the longest bridges in existence when it was built back in 1982.

    Spiegel Grove

    For those who love scuba-diving, Spiegel Grove is a diving site you do not want to miss! The USS Spiegel Grove, located 6 miles off the Atlantic side of the island, is an artificial reef that was intentionally sunk back in 2002. Explore the wreck and witness an abundance of colorful coral and fish that lie 65 feet below the surface.

    Molasses Reef

    The most popular reef in the Upper Keys is Molasses Grove - located in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Shallow sections are found within the reef that is perfect for snorkeling too. Vibrant coral lines the reef and is home to colorful fish, eels, sharks, and stingrays, and more.

    Sandbars around Key Largo

    Want to check out some unique destinations around Key Largo with your boat? Here are a few options and ideas on places to go.

    Nest Key

    Located on the Bay Side of Key Largo, this spot offers gorgeous blue waters that are perfect for snorkeling. It can be busy here on the weekends, so take care to watch for other boats if you’re jumping overboard and swimming around Nest Key.

    Everglades National Park

    For all of the nature lovers out there, the Everglades will not disappoint! The best way to see the alligators and other wildlife of the Everglades is on a boat tour once you enter the national park. It’s about a 30-40 minute drive from Key Largo to the park entrance, where you can book a guided boat tour. You can also reach the Everglades by boat from Key Largo since the park technically starts in the Blackwater Sound, which is bayside of Key Largo. You must be super careful if you boat here on your own, as there are many shallow areas, mangroves, manatees, and other protected areas that you do not want to accidentally damage with your boat.

    Watersports in Key Largo

    Want to have an adrenaline-filled adventure in Key Largo? Rent a jet ski and zoom around the waves, exploring the beautiful beaches and coastal views. If you want to stay on the bayside, take your jet ski around the Blackwater Sound and Buttonwood Sound.

    Would you rather explore Key Largo powered by your own strength on the water? Kayak rentals and kayaking tours are excellent options for getting exercise while exploring the beauty of the keys. Kayaking is a great budget-friendly activity, with prices starting as low as $75 for a kayak and snorkeling adventure.

    Snorkeling & Scuba Diving in Key Largo

    If you don’t go snorkeling in Key Largo, you’re missing out on some of the best underwater views in all of the United States. John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park was established in 1963 and was the first underwater state park in the United States.
