"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.

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.

Enjoy our video of the experience. It was a cloudy snorkel day but fun anyways.
