Diving in the Florida Keys

The Florida Keys offer some of the best diving in the world. There are barrier coral reef habitats as well as shallow patch reefs to explore. Keys waters are home to hundreds of modern and ancient ship wrecks. Divers also hunt fish and lobsters.

I am sure that you are aware of the old cliché "This page is a work in progress." This is unquestionably true here. At this point I have information on only one dive site, the wreck of the USS Sturtevant (DD-240) a US Destroyer that was a casualty of the Key West minefield.

Seagrasses are marine plants that serve as an important part of the food chain by providing nourishment for manatees, turtles, and a wide range of fish. They provide habitat to other organisms such as crabs, lobsters, shrimp, fish and other marine creatures. Seagrass beds filter and oxygenate the water and stabilize the ocean bottom with their roots. Thus they provide significant habitat and nursery for a diverse assortment of marine creatures that migrate to the reef and on to the North Atlantic ocean.
