Key Largo is the northernmost island of the Florida Keys island chain and lies only an hour’s drive from South Florida’s two major airports. It is sandwiched between Everglades National Park to the west and the fish-covered coral formations of North America’s only living coral barrier reef to the east.
Six miles offshore in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary you will find the wreck of the Spiegel Grove, a 510-foot Navy ship intentionally scuttled in June 2002 as the backbone for a new coral reef.
Locals consider Key Largo the Diving Capital of the World, but the island is also famous as a sport-fishing destination. Some of the best charter captains and fishing guides in the world work out of Key Largo. You can go after sailfish offshore, bonefish along the Atlantic shallows, or redfish and tarpon in Florida Bay.
