How it Works

Beginners, seasoned divers and snorkelers can become a Reef Explorer. Upon your arrival to the Florida Keys, ask any dive or snorkel operator for a complimentary Reef Explorer Guide. The guide highlights the unique coral reefs from Key Largo to Key West. To participate, simply collect a stamp from any dive or snorkel operator you book a reef charter with in each of the Keys' five regions to total five stamps (one in each region).

Key Largo

For as long as divers have prowled the seas, Key Largo has prevailed as one of the top dive destinations in the Western Hemisphere.


Hen & Chickens? Pickles Reef? While Islamorada might not sound like a serious dive destination, slip below the surface and behold a strange and wonder-filled world rich with diversity and teeming with sea life.


With a name like Marathon, you’d expect the middle of the Keys to offer nonstop diving adventure. You won’t be disappointed.

The Lower Keys

The Lower Keys are the least developed of The Florida Keys and in many ways the most natural.

Key West

If you’ve ever wondered why much of the inspiration for Key West’s art community comes from the sea, take a look below the surface.
