The Best Activities in the Florida Keys
The Florida Keys are the perfect destination for anyone that enjoys spending time outside. There are incredible reefs, gorgeous waters, beautiful weather and a ton of activities to engage in after dark. It is easy to find something to enjoy on your vacation. The following activities are some of the best that the Florida Keys have to offer.

When you think of the Florida Keys,
 the ocean almost immediately comes to mind. Therefore, some of the most popular activities at this destination involve the water, and include fishing, scuba diving and snorkeling. Fisherman enjoy catching and eating their dinner, as the local waters in the Keys are filled with snapper, redfish, lobster, shrimp and grouper. Fisherman of different experience levels all enjoy the fishing in the Florida Keys, and fishing excursions are available for the adventurous at heart. If you do not want to go on an excursion, just find a little spot to throw out line and see what you reel in. You will not be disappointed in everything the Florida Keys has to offer.

Would you rather be in the water than fishing around it? The Florida Keys are well known for their diving excursions.  You never know what you might find when you are swimming beneath the surface of the ocean. You could run into a sea turtle or stumble across a school of angel fish. Do not forget your underwater camera if you head over to the reefs; the view is simply stunning. If you really know what you are doing, you may find a wreck to swim through or even find yourself swimming with the sharks. However, the shallow reefs are perfect for those just starting out in the diving world.

There are certainly things to do on the water that do not involve diving or fishing. Visitors to the Keys often enjoy sailing and kayaking as well. Sailing allows you to take in as much of the Keys as possible. If you are feeling adventurous, you can actually live on the sailboat for a short time and take off on a week-long adventure. You will find that the sunsets in the Florida Keys are some of the most beautiful in the world, and seeing them from the water is an incredible experience. There is also something special about spending your days on the water, with the sea salt spraying in your face.

If you are a nature-lover, kayaking might be the activity for you. You can maneuver through the wetlands and natural preserves of the Keys, viewing alligators, birds and perhaps a manatee!

If you decide to stay on the shore, you can still have a great time in the Florida Keys. The white sand beaches are a great place to relax and look for seashells. You will find no shortage of activities in the Florida Keys, so starting planning your next trip today! You will have a wonderful time in this sunny bit of paradise, and you may begin planning your return trip before you even leave the area!
