Key West Snorkeling

Visibility: On clear days, visibility soars to 120 feet, but averages are closer to 60 to 80 feet. Winter storms can stir up chop, and along the shallow reefs visibility can drop to 30 feet or less, but when the storms pass, visibility can improve with just a couple of tidal shifts.
Water Conditions: Diving is year-round. The best conditions are from May to September, with relatively calm seas and good vis—except during tropical storms and hurricanes.

Water Temperatures: Range from the 70Fs in mid-winter to 80Fs in summer.

Home to America’s only living-coral barrier reef, the 120-mile Florida Keys island chain is truly a national treasure. This teeming sanctuary of marine life runs the length of the Keys about five miles off offshore.




Our coral formations are famous for their abundance of tropical fish, from impressive schools of blue-striped grunts to toothy green moray eels in Key West.
Preserving the reef is a top priority for a good reason. There is no more versatile marine destination in the world. We have coral laden ship wrecks and intricate natural coral formations. We have shallow reefs for snorkelers, and deeper reefs for experienced divers.

Snorkeling Anecdotes


Yes you can hear people scream underwater.

    A friend of mine would come down quite often. In recent years when ever he got a couple
weeks leave from Iraq he would make his way to Key West for his R and R. Ran into a friend
of his mom and she said he finally married the young lady he used to bring down. So if you
read this congratulations. One of the things he loves to do is snorkel. I would take him to one
of the local beaches after dark to snorkel. I would bring my dive lights and we would see what
we could find. I still do this as often as I can when I can talk someone into going. Most
people find that it is a little to eerie for their taste and don't last more that five minutes in the
water. Most of the time you are in pitch black except for as far as your dive lights will illuminate.
    On this particular night it was a full moon which is the best. The light from the moon hits
the surface of the water and you get a mosaic of thousands of streaks of light dancing
on the ocean floor all around you. I only had one dive light to use while we were snorkeling so I
gave it to him and just swam about fifteen feet to the side and slightly behind. We snorkeled around
the old wooden pier and before calling it a night I told him to swim an arch over the turtle grass on the way back in. We were snorkeling only three feet above the sea floor even with the light from the full moon it was still dark outside the range of the lights. It must have been about half way back and before you knew it he came face to face with a green moray eel about four feet from each other. He let out a
scream that even I could hear and in a fraction of a second both him and the eel did a 180 degree
turn and speed away. Being off to the side I got a great view of both there reactions and just could
not stop from laughing.
