Destination Key Largo


As you approach the first of the Florida Keys, prepare for an incredible sight – Key Largo, the Atlantic Ocean and Florida Bay from the top of the Jewfish Creek Bridge, soaring 65 feet above the water. Welcome to the island of Key Largo, your first key in paradise where you can kick off your shoes and leave the cares of the world behind. The draw has always been the sea – its beauty and its bounty sounding the siren song. Clear waters beckon you to explore the only living coral reefs in the continental U.S. at John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. In 2020 Pennekamp, the first underwater park in the United States, is celebrating their 60th anniversary. Be sure to check out their 30,000-gallon saltwater aquarium. Scuba diving and snorkeling the fragile reef reveals a Technicolor explosion of tropical fish and calming coral “gardens”. Visitors flock to the Christ of the Deep statue, which resides north of the 510-foot U.S.S. Spiegel Grove artificial reef. For fishermen, nothing beats the rewards of a day spent hooking snapper, grouper, and amberjack or landing tarpon or one of the area’s gray ghosts – the elusive bonefish, found on the shallow-water flats. Watersports abound for the adrenaline enthusiast and nature lover alike – rent a Jet Ski or a kayak and chart your own course. Or leave the “driving” to any of our qualified eco-tour operators, who can show you manatees, brilliant roseate spoonbills as they roost and soar overhead, pods of playful wild dolphins and more. For Land-based enchantment, nature trails at Pennekamp Park and Everglades National Park offer a glimpse into South Florida’s unique hammock and marshland ecosystems. When night comes, island living means dining on fresh-caught seafood at a waterfront restaurant and then relaxing to the sounds of waves lapping softly at the shore or enjoying live entertainment at area venues. But don’t worry about a dress code – Key Largo is laid back and casual, even at its most formal. However, if the urge to dress up overcomes you, go for it! Virtually anything goes here! From first-class resorts to luxurious oceanfront estates, to charming beach bungalows and small boutique hotels, you’ll find your own slice of paradise to call home. If island time fits the rhythm of your life, Key Largo is sure to please, whether you choose to fill your days with activities or relax in the glow of our spectacular sunsets.

Marine Menagerie Amongst Mangroves Theater of the Sea:

Where can a family spend a full day interacting with dolphins, sea lions, sharks and rays, enjoy a few hours relaxing on the beach, and go on a bottomless boat ride? Theater of the Sea has been welcoming visitors to the Florida Keys since 1946. Besides being a fun place to take the family, it serves as a sanctuary to many aquatic residents such as four different varieties of endangered sea turtles. In addition, it is the home to several parrots who were turned over by private owners, and “Toby” a dolphin that was attacked by a shark. Although not a rescue animal, visitors will “ooh” and “aah” over an adorable new baby sea lion. Upon approaching the park, visitors will notice the beautiful fountains, giant conch shell, and award winning landscaping. After purchasing their tickets, visitors leave the chaos and havoc of their daily lives and step into a world filled with beautiful

green foliage, clearly paved paths, and an amazing menagerie of animals. It is certainly not part of the concrete jungle with wide open spaces. Like a good glass of wine, Theater of the Sea is not something to be rushed, but to be savored slowly over a period of time in small, enchanting sips. With intimate vignettes visitors meander along its lush paths and watch sea turtles being fed by hand, or stop to experience a thrilling dolphin show similar to those first seen in the 1940’s. As they stroll about, guests will see two distinct eco systems and also have opportunities to watch a sea lion show, parrot show, and observe crocodilians. Visitors will be delighted to know that this is not a zoo and can expect to get up close and personal with many of the animals. Children and adults of all ages will have ample opportu nities to interact with the animals while visiting Theater

of the Sea. Dolphin lovers, for example, will delight in the antics of these loving, social creatures while snorkeling beside them. Included in this experience are dorsal tows, hugs, and kisses. Those a little less daring can do a dolphin wade, which entails interacting with the dolphins while standing in three to four feet of water. Want to join the fun but don’t want to get wet? Even land lovers can interact with the dolphins and get a few kisses too!

After a stroll around the park, visitors can enjoy a quick bite to eat at Nicky’s Grill, and relax on the beach at the lagoon. As a timeless tradition of the Florida Keys, Theater of the Sea is something you will not want to miss. For more information or to make reservations, go to, or call 305-664-2431.

Many encounters are also available with sea lions.

Limestone! What are the Florida Keys Made From?

The Florida Keys are a chain of limestone islands that extend from the southern tip of the Florida mainland southwest to the Dry Tortugas, a distance of approximately 220 miles. They are island remnants of ancient coral reefs (Upper Keys) and sand bars (Lower Keys) that flourished during a period of higher sea levels approxi mately 125,000 years ago (a period of geologic time known as the Pleistocene Epoch). During the last ice age (100,000 years ago) sea level dropped, exposing the ancient coral reefs and sand bars which became fossilized over time to

form the rock that makes up the island chain today. The two dominate rock formations in the Keys are Key Largo Limestone and Miami Oolite. During this time of lower sea levels, the Florida land mass was much larger than it is today and the area now referred to as Florida Bay was forested. As glaciers and polar ice caps started melting 15,000 years ago, flooding of land combined with tidal influence changed the geography of the Keys and their surrounding areas.

Soaking Up Sun and Fun in Key Largo

If you are more of a thrill seeker, try soaring about the bay attached to a parasail. Once you are strapped into a harness, the motorboat pulls forward, your chute begins to fill, and then you climb into the air, way above the surface of the bay. While soaring overhead, you will be treated to a view of Key Largo, something you will never forget. If you’re looking for other adventures, hire one of our fishing guides, or just drop in a line from the shore. Rent a personal watercraft, a paddleboat, or a sailing catamaran – they are all readily available around town. For details on equipment purchasing or rentals, sunrise or sunset guided tours, scuba or snorkeling lessons, check the “On the Water” section in this issue. Also, we have direct links to all Key Largo offers so many ways to get out on the water and enjoy an extended summer. Come to Key Largo, and just add water! our chamber members at

Key Largo is known for its laid-back lifestyle with a cozy impression of a summer vacation between the Atlantic Ocean and Florida Bay, all through the year. Get ready to plunge yourself into our slice of Paradise. Key Largo is recognized as the Diving Capital of the World and offers dive and snorkel services to the continental United States’ only living coral barrier reef, the Spiegel Grove shipwreck, and much more. We have many experienced dive companies to take you on memorable dive trips to the reef. They can also teach you to dive and help get you certified. There are also many other ways to appreciate and partake in water sports here in Key Largo and the fabulous Florida Keys... Snorkeling is a magnificent way to unite with the aquatic underworld. As you float gently on the surface, you may see snappers, parrotfish, starfish, tarpon, and schools of silversides swim among colorful corals and sponges. You don’t have to be a world-class swimmer to enjoy snorkeling in the Keys. The water surrounding the Florida Keys is shallow and normally calm,

even on the reef, even rookie snorkelers can quickly and safely get the hang of the sport. Our dive and water sports companies know the best places to go for the most dramatic viewing of marine life in the sparkling clear ocean waters surrounding the reef system. If you would like to venture out on your own, rental shops can point out the best spots for snorkeling from shore, and the best views of the most stupendous undersea life at the reef. Paddleboarding is another way to add water to your vacation. Being on a paddleboard is like walking on water. The shallow, calm waters off Key Largo make this an ideal place to take up this easy to learn sport. Our local waters are so clear, you can see right down to the bottom and watch fish swimming by. Just like paddleboarding, Kayaking is another easy, peaceful way to get out on the water. For a simpler, gentler paddle, explore the narrow, winding mangrove trails of John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park or those off Garden Cove Park. Watch herons, egrets, and ibis take flight as you round the

“S” curves in another twist in the mangrove trails. Being on the open bay waters and having the opportunity to see manatees and playful dolphins splashing around is a wonderful experience. You can even dock at one of our waterfront restaurants for a bite to eat. Next up is swimming. Swimming in warm waters around Key Largo is a year-round delight. Most of the waterfront hotels have small swimming beaches. Also, John Pennekamp and Harry Harris parks have beaches as well. The best thing to do —And a locals’ favorite form of swimming— is jump into the ocean (or bay) from the deck of an anchored boat. But before you do, make sure you have a swim ladder over the side of the boat for easy access back aboard. And always be mindful of currents that could take you away from the boat. If a pool is your idea of a good place to swim, Jacobs Aquatic Center in Key Largo has a lap pool, low and high dive boards, and a kiddie pool with a pirate ship and waterfalls. Many hotels also have their own swimming pools, fresh and saltwater.

Here are tips on how you can help protect our valuable coral reefs: • Support organizations like Coral Restoration Foundation and REEF; they both work to protect coral reefs. In your area find other groups and volunteer to keep the oceans, rivers, lakes or other waters in your area clean. Clean water is important everywhere. All watersheds affect the oceans and eventually, the coral reefs. • Safeguard our coral during diving and snorkeling by wearing sunscreen that does not contain oxybenzone and octinoxate. These chemicals may harm the reefs. • Also, don’t touch, stand, or anchor your boat on the reef. • Organize a beach clean-up. • Conserve water – using less water, means less runoff and wastewater that resolve in polluting our oceans. • Use only environmental safe or organic fertilizers. All chemicals and pollutants eventually flow into our oceans. • Learn more about the vital importance of coral reefs. • Get your family, friends and community involved… How to Protect Our Coral Reefs
