Bored of a Bland Life? Keys's the Key to All Adventure

If life seems a sloth, Florida Keys is the place to be. Very few places in the world have such an impressive array of adventurous activities as this. Not just beautiful beaches and exotic locations, Florida Keys, or simply Keys, is any adventure-lover’s delight. The variety you can indulge in, the beauty you can revel in, is second to none. So what are you waiting for? If adventure thrills you and if you can’t put down the call of the wild, pull up your socks and head straight for Florida Keys. Enjoy its store of fun and action.

Now let’s take a quick peek at what Keys offers to put the zing back in your insipid life.


One of the most popular activities in the Keys is diving. Be it an easy and shallow reef diving, or a deep adventure on sunken wrecks—the Keys has it all. The living coral reef is more inviting than you can possibly imagine and the warm, clear blue water here is home to the marvelous marine creatures, which you can easily meet when you dive deep or snorkel. No wonder it’s called the Dive Capital of the world!


If you’re in the Keys, you can’t afford to miss the fishing, for this place has one of the world’s finest fishing opportunities. Whether you fish offshore in a powerboat equipped with heavy tackle (for big catches) and light rods and reels (for small catches), or you explore the backcountry waters for sharks and barracudas, you must go fishing at the Keys to experience the real fishing delights.


To make your Florida Keys vacation memorable, go kayaking on the tranquil Atlantic shores with your beloved or just sail along watching the beautiful sunset. You can take full or half day kayaking tours that are usually offered. You may also go on shallow-water skiff eco-tours or the backcountry catamaran cruises.

Bird Watching

A unique chance to watch the rarest birds lies here at the Keys. Over 180 bird species are found here and some 60 are bred. You’ll find the Broadwing, Swainson, sharp-shinned hawks, mangrove cuckoo, Antillian nighthawk, Buntings, Orioles, Tanagers, Terns, Vireos, herons, egrets, gulls, yellow warblers and many more spectacular birds if you watch sharply.

Dolphin Watching

If that wasn’t enough, Florida Keys has dolphin watching fun schedules to offer as well. You can take eco-tours around the coral reefs and watch the famous Atlantic bottle-nose dolphins play in their natural environment. And if you’re vacationing with kids, dolphin-watching can be one surefire winner in your itinerary. So watch out!

Even that’s not all. When you’ve had it all—diving, snorkeling, fishing, kayaking, bird or dolphin watching—Florida Keys still has more on its platter. You can go parasailing, or get wave-runners and aqua-cycles to get the whole family into action.
