Diving Florida

When we speak about Florida, everyone thinks oranges, marshes, Cap Canaveral, Miami, Art Deco architecture, and the famous Crockett and Tubbs from the legendary 80's television series. However, we have a harder time associating this region with our favourite discipline, scuba diving... And yet, we should! Being home to the only coral reef in the United States, Miami and the Keys are full of pleasant surprises. The big attraction here is the volunteer shipwreck immersions. They bring joy to the fish that come to repopulate these waters and to the divers who love admiring them. One of the last immersions, the Vanderburg, dates back to 2009. It was nearly 160m long and required 13 years of preparation. The tourist office has done some fun things, such as, offering a specific passport, the Wreck Trek Passport Program, which entitles the holder to a fun discovery of the 9 main shipwrecks in the Keys. If you are not a big fan of old ships, no problem-- there is something for everybody here! Out of the 4000 registered sites, you are bound to find something that interests you. At West Palm Beach, you can dive with turtles or explore the massive coral in Dry Tortugas National Park. Don't forget to stop by and see the old ramparts of Fort Jefferson, a favourite amongst snorkelers for the richness of the fauna on the reef. And as for those who love the out-of-the-ordinary, you'll be in seventh heaven at Crystal River, where you can play in a multitude of hot springs and possibly get to see the occasional manatee. Beautiful surprises await you. Just remember, we told you.
