Some of the best dives sites in the Florida Keys can be found in Key Largo. From shallow reef dives to deep water wreck dives, there is something here for every level of diver.

It is located near Dry Rocks, about six miles east-northeast of the Key Largo Cut, in the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park.
Islamorada is world famous for it's fishing. From the adventurous deep sea fishing to relaxing back country flats fishing, avid anglers will certainly find something to get their reels spinning here. It's an ever changing sport too, as different seasons bring different fish. Year round tournaments attract anglers from all over.
