Spent an afternoon at John Pennekamp State Park in Key Largo, FL snorkeling with my niece. jWhat fun! There were about 25 of us on the boat with a great captain and mate. They took us an half an hour ride out to the coral reef where we spent an hour an a half snorkeling. After a 5 minute refresher course on board, we plunged into the 75 degree waters (wearing wetsuits since they were recommended for anything under 78 degrees.Yes, we wimped out, but not cold, or even cool in the waters.) Lots of colorful and shiny fishies and lovely plant life, too! The Park also hosts a campsite, rents kayaks for paddling through the mangroves, and also you can ride on a glass bottom boat if you're not that adventurous. For $22 plus $6 for the wet suit, I think that's a good deal!
