    Miami Herald's "3 Great Things About South FL"

    pictures coming soon
    Stop at Robbie's and pay a couple of dollars for a bucket of (dead) fish. Walk out on to the pier and feed the wild tarpon (2 - 7 feet long). It's a really cool experience.... you'll be glad you did it.
    BE CAREFUL the pelicans are quick....they'll snatch the fish right out of your hand before you get a chance to feed the tarpon. If you can avoid the pelican steal, occasionally the tarpon will jump out of the water for their score.

    Aqua-Nuts divers

    by tuoedisni1 Written Feb 8, 2004

    If you are going for diving instruction or for your certification dives - I highly recommend Aqua-Nuts. My instructor Leo was great - knowledgable and very patient (can you tell I was scared :). Couldn't have gone with a better company. Can't wait to go diving again! See below for their website.

    If you don't want to spend the time and money on a snorkeling charter, just stop at this state park. It has three beaches, one of which has an old Spanish shipwreck. Just pick up some cheap snorkeling equipment at the local K-Mart or rent it at the park. Lots of fish and some old cannons and stuff.

    by dila Written Mar 14, 2003
    dolphin

    we went to the
    dolphin research centre

    i did tips on training here with A.J. and a female dolphin
    it is a pity that we didnot have a swim with the dolphins. you have to make a reservation.
    there was also a dolphin training for a film they have to jump over a "fence?"but i forgot the name of the film.
    the dolphin on the picture makes a painting on the t-shirt.

    by Pavlik_NL Written Feb 25, 2003

    Parrotsfish, elefantsfish, piereels, sunfish, discusfish as well as sharks, baracuda's and murena. The coralreefworld has all kinds of inhabitants and some of them that you could be afraid of are even more afraid of you. The reef itself is fragile and in a delicate balance that nature so often has. Here it is however even more fragile then in many other places and please, have respect for these wonders. Don't gather so-called souvenirs at the reef itself. Buy a throw-away underwatercamera and make pictures to share the beauty. The feeling is however the best and that ... has everyone to experience themselves.

    Dolphins Plus Research Center

    by allenkite Written Sep 2, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Swimming with the dolphins . . . There are lots and lots of places that advertise this in the Florida Keys . . . This one is first class . . . You will have lots of choices . . . I picked the structured swim, which guarantees you interaction with the dolphins . . . Beware, this is an all day adventure with lots of education before you actually get in the water with the dophins . . . The dolphins choose to live at the center . . . They are given several opportunites each month to venture out and leave but they do not . . . Unfortunately, it was very cold when I went (that is me in the water with them) . . . But it still was a great experience . . . Reservations are a must . . . Cost is about $80

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mallory Square
    Located on the historic waterfront between Whitehead and Duval Streets. Exciting attractions, unparalleled, Key West's finest Cuban restaurant, shopping, the Key West Historic Memorial Sculpture Garden and the famous Key West Sunset Celebration.
    After a day of sightseeing and shopping, be sure and attend 'Sunset Fest' at Mallory Square (north end of Duval). This nightly event is where both locals and visitors gather to experience a glorious Florida Keys sunset while being entertained by musicians and Key West style carnival acts. As you watch the sunset to the sound of a piper playing 'Amazing Grace' in the background, you will begin to understand why locals refer to the Florida Keys and Key West as 'paradise'. Sunset Fest is the perfect way to end your day and begin your evening.

    KEY WEST - the Spanish name...

    by ladyfisher Written Aug 24, 2002

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    KEY WEST - the Spanish name for this island is Cayo Hueso, meaning 'island of bones'. This less than pleasant name was coined by Spanish explorers that found the skeletal remains of Indians when they discovered Key West. Only 90 miles from Cuba, Key West served as a waypoint for travelers between the United States and Cuba prior to Fidel Castro taking power.
    The shot is really fuzzy due to the fact Hubby was trying to park the car and one of the 'local colorful
    street' (a street drunk) offered to take the picture. They do it to get a buck . What a way to make a living oh while he lives in parisdise any way. When Hubby returned we were out of film:( Never made it back to take another.

    Hemingway House
    Ernest Hemingway arrived in Key West in the spring of 1928 with his second wife Pauline, at the age of 29. He was already a published author, and had received a degree of literary acclaim with the publication of 'The Sun Also Rises'. Hemingway had gained acceptance of the literary crowd that included Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, James Joyce, and F. Scott Fitzgerald
    There are approximately sixty cats living at the Hemingway Home and Museum. They come in all sizes, shapes, colors, and personalities.

    About half of the cats are polydactyl, which means that they have extra toes.

    The visibility was pretty good here. Grecian rocks is a popular spot for snorkeling because the reef is so high and the area is protected from strong currents.

    Celebration on the Mallory Dock. Once the sun is safely tucked away by jugglers, mimes, musicians and street artists, the city moves to a different beat.
