On December 27, 2015 we had the fortune of chartering with some great people. The charter lasted an entire week and ended on January 2, 2016. Embarking from South Miami beach we spent two days in Key Largo at the John Pennenkamp Coral Reef State park.
This beautiful coral reef is the first undersea park in the US and encompasses approximately 70 nautical square miles. While the mangrove swans and tropical hammocks in the park’s upland areas offer visitors a unique experience, it is the coral reefs and their associated marine life that bring the most visitors to the park. Many enjoy the view of the reef from a glass-bottom boat tour, but for an even more unique adventure embarking on a SCUBA diving or snorkeling adventure is fun. Our adventurers took the opportunity for some kayaking as well.
We spent New Year’s Eve at Islamorada. Islamorada is a "Village of Islands," and is an incorporated village in Monroe County, Florida, United States. It is located on the islands of Tea Table Key, Lower Matecumbe Key, Upper Matecumbe Key, Windley Key and Plantation Key in the Florida Keys. On the second we said good bye to our wonderful new friends.
Good times had by all and what a great way to start the New Year!!
