My daughter and I went for the first time today. We were in search of snorkeling areas. We enjoyed both beaches, Far beach and Cannon beach. We saw loads of fish, hermit crabs, a huge tarpon, nurse shark, and red jellyfish. There are iguanas running around the shore areas. We didn't take a snorkeling trip because we only had time...

We reserved a snorkeling trip for 5-- my husband and I, our 9 yr old son and 17 yr old daughter and 14 yr old nephew. We arrived an hour or so early and were advised of rough conditions at sea and given the option to change things up, we opted to stick with it -- We are from KY... More

We saw some of the best reefs and sea life we've ever seen while snorkeling. Captain Brian and Morgan were awesome. They were very attentive, informative, and friendly. Back to the snorkeling...the reefs were alive and vibrant, the fish were plentiful and varied and the last stop at the statue of Christ was spectacular.

Brian N. and John were very helpful and friendly guides. The boat ride and snorkeling were great! The reef offers a unique experience to view a variety of marine life. The park gets busy so earlier trips are better.

the beaches were infested with upside-down jellyfish the entire family came away tingling from stings. If the weather cooperates i would recommend a cruise to the offshore reef, and avoid the close in swimming

We did the 2.5 hour snorkeling tour. The captain and the assistant on the boat were awesome. You have a solid 45 minutes to an hour in the water and can swim freely in a large secure area. Very fun and worth every penny!

Great place but plan on booking a snorkel trip, dive trip, kayaks, etc. we rented a boat. Newer center console boats. 21ft long. Prices include gas. Very fair prices. However, be warned about boating in the keys - it's complicated. Way more than most are used to. I've owned 4 boats and grew up on boats. Lots of reefs, shallows,... More

We have camped here 2 times before. Previous visits I rated the campground at 5. I am a little disappointed in the upkeep this time. Our campsite was not clean and trees were allowed to grow in such a way that made the site narrow. Our rig is 13 foot 4 inches high and some of the tree growth made... More
