Along with fishing, snorkeling, and boating, visitors on a Key Largo vacation can also visit the African Queen.

Another exciting thing to do is soak in the area’s scenery by visiting the Everglades National Park. There are no other ecosystems like this one. The park offers over 1.4 million acres of luscious native Florida habitat and tourists can see bald eagles, deer, bobcats and alligators often during their visits. If you love the water, Key Largo has many water related activities to visit. One in particular is the Spiegel Grove, a diver’s paradise. This site is home to a retired Navy vessel that was intentionally sunk to become an artificial reef. It’s home to hundreds of species of fish and other marine life and is a great place to dive at. The Jacobs Aquatic Center is a 3-pool complex/water park that has interactive play areas for the family, including a large pirate ship for the kids to play on. There is also the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. Visitors to the park can take relaxing glass bottom boat rides, snorkel, dive, and partake in other eco tours.
