While there are countless things to do on dry land during your Key West vacation, there are also endless adventures out on the open water. The crystal Gulf of Mexico surrounding this Florida island is perfect for several activities, both above and below the surface. A popular thing to do during any stay at Southernmost Inn is to discover a colorful aquatic world snorkeling in Key West waters.

Where to Go Snorkeling

The great thing about snorkeling is that it’s an activity you can enjoy on your own. The coastline off of places like Fort Zachary Taylor State Park and Dry Tortugas National Park are fantastic for snorkelers of all skill levels. Wade into the warm water before diving below the surface to see colorful fish and living coral reefs.
