Along the coastal high you will find some views that you just have to pull over and take a photo. There is not as many beaches in the Florida Keys as you would think, this is more like what you will find. Still very nice and worth taken the shot. Make sure you have lots of batteries and film or memory.
located on crawl key this small state park is on the ocean just east of marathon. the park offers swimming and picnic tables. in the fall of the year the park is visited by 1000's of migrating hawks and eagles. the park has a mangrove ecosystem common in the florida keys.
I have been vacationing in the Keys (Marathon, to be specific) a few times and when we come, it is for Scuba Diving. And when we book our diving trips, we ALWAYS dive with Captain Hook's. This year's trip was as good as always, and we brought 2 of or friends that haven't been to the Keys before and they are excited to come back in 2014.
Captain Greg, Dive Master Eric, First Mate Ryan and Dive Master Bonnie always made us feel welcome, and provide the best help (speaking as someone who recently had a hip replacement and is always worried about being able to get back on the boat without re-injuring myself, I am always given wonderful treatment).
Their boat is comfortable, the entire staff of the shop friendly and helpful, and we never mind getting up at 6:30 am each day on vacation because we know we get to board the Reef Hopper for a day of fun!
I HIGHLY recommend Captain Hook's for all your diving needs! Regardless of your diving experience, they will take great care of you.
Can't wait to return in 2 years!
