Snorkeling at Looe Key National Marine Sanctuary – Florida

"Looe Key National Marine Sanctuary was created in 1990. It is named for the HSM Looe, A British ship that wrecked in 1744. Located just five miles from our shore, we are the closest point to Looe Key with running time about 30 minutes." – Strike Zone Charters.

How convenient and just our cup of tea since their 1st tour time was doable – 9:30am. Enough time for coffee and breakfast to get our energy up for the snorkel. They have a 1:30pm tour but anyone who goes out in the ocean knows that the earlier the better. Why? Wind kicks in as the earth wakes up. Enjoy our video of the experience. It was a cloudy snorkel day but fun anyways.

Notes on Snorkeling Here

• Don’t fear the jellyfish here. They don’t seem to sting.
• We’re still in search of the resident Goliath Grouper that live here, too and have heard are on the critically endangered species list.
