Key West Scuba Diving Has Never Been Better

Just when you thought you couldn't possibly afford a Key Westvacation, prices on airfare, cruises, and accommodations drop even lower. Instead of wrestling with passports, currency exchanges, and languages barriers, why not head for Florida where you can enjoy your very own tropical paradise?

You can lounge on a pristine beach, enjoy Key West snorkeling, or scour the depths as you exploring sunken ships on a Key West scuba diving adventure in just a few short hours of travel time. Scuba certification classes don't take very long and they are enjoyable all on their own. Once you are certified, the world is your oyster, your lobster, and your anemone!

Key West Scuba Diving For Beginners

Once you arrive in Florida, be sure to enroll in one of the many Key West scuba diving classes offered. If you have the time, the best package is a 3-day event that starts with classroom instruction and then provides you with pool and ocean diving for the next 2 days. Most Key West scuba diving packages include all of your equipment plus food and beverages, a friendly, knowledgeable staff, and some of the most amazing underwater terrain you've ever seen.

You can explore sunken ships, try a Key West dolphin encounter, or take the most stunning photographs of your life on your Key West scuba diving adventure. If you'd prefer starting more slowly, you can begin with Key West snorkeling, which is a great introduction to the local underwater flora and fauna. You can enjoy a glass-bottomed boat ride out to an area frequented by dolphins and then slip into the buoyant waters to do some exploring on your own.

Dining, Dancing, Dolphins, And Rum

In addition to the thrill of a Key West scuba diving or snorkeling package, you can enjoy a sunset or dinner cruise complete with the tropical rhythms of Caribbean music and free rum punch! Life just doesn't get much better than this. Take an afternoon to work on your tan and then head for Old Town to see some of the sights. You can visit a pirate museum, one of the best aquariums in the world, or simply stroll through town and browse the unique shops for gifts and clothes for yourself and friends and family back home.

Just about everyone loves dolphins and you can visit an underwater dolphin playground on one of your Key West scuba diving treks. Your Key West vacation will have you entertained around the clock with fine dining, live entertainment, and the most incredible scenery imaginable. You can rent a kayak, a bicycle, an electric car, or a jet ski. There are airplane tours, charter boat tours, and even a backcountry hiking tour.

Florida's Flora And Fauna

The ocean is filled with more flora and fauna than people will probably ever be able to categorize. As you enjoy your Key West snorkeling or scuba diving experience, you may encounter several types of sport fish, anemone, lobster, starfish, sharks, eagle rays, stingrays, and dolphins in addition to possibly meeting a friendly resident jewfish that weighs over 200-pounds!

The coral reefs of Key West allow you to see plate, staghorn, and brain corals, among many others. The tropical fish are colorful and curious and you will have to ask yourself why you never thought of doing this before! Key West Dive Center is a great place to get all of your Key West scuba diving and snorkeling information. The beach is waiting!
