The Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary is in the process of returning the reefs to their pristine beginnings. There are more dive shops and dive boats in Southeast Florida than anywhere else on the planet.

Year after year the Florida Keys attract a million divers and snorkelers, willing to discover this little paradise lying by their doorstep. Here you can find the largest artificial reef and wreck program in the country: the upper Keys have two famous artificial reef wrecks, the Spiegel Grove and the Duane, plus 60 other wrecks in the vicinity, some of them in perfect for the novice diver. There's reefs from North Palm Beach to South Ft. Lauderdale that run parallel to shore; and curious as it can be, Lobster hunting and spearfishing is acceptable in many areas (lobstering in Florida is legal from late July through March).
