Dive Into the Deep Blue
Visitors to the Florida Keys are often looking to feel one with the ocean. We’ve highlighted a few options in the Islamorada area that offer a unique experience of the deep blue, beyond the usual snorkel adventure.
If you want to keep your legs on land, you can always explore the ocean vicariously at the History of Diving Museum. This special spot is also right here in Islamorada. Over a span of forty years, the museum founders acquired one of the world’s largest collections of diving helmets, hand-operated air pumps, armored suits, lights, memorabilia, prints, photographs, books, and more. Collected from more than 30 countries, these artifacts present a true deep-dive into the history of this barrier-breaking pastime. The museum is open daily from 10 am to 5 pm.
