Visitors to the Florida Keys are often looking to feel one with the ocean. We’ve highlighted a few options in the Islamorada area that offer a unique experience of the deep blue, beyond the usual snorkel adventure
If you want to keep your legs on land, you can always explore the ocean vicariously at the History of Diving Museum. This special spot is also right here in Islamorada. Over a span of forty years, the museum founders acquired one of the world’s largest collections of diving helmets, hand-operated air pumps, armored suits, lights, memorabilia, prints, photographs, books, and more. Collected from more than 30 countries, these artifacts present a true deep-dive into the history of this barrier-breaking pastime. The museum is open daily from 10 am to 5 pm.
“Love, love, love this place. Everything is pretty, well kept and clean. Palm trees by day & fire pit by night plus all the lawn games, pool, & tiki bar. Do yourself a favor & stay.”
“The views are amazing, the pool is tranquil, the beach is spectacular and the rooms are quite nice! Would definitely come back for another stay!”
“Highly recommended this hotel. No need to drive all the way down to Key West. Islamorada has so much to offer. This hotel is a true example of that.”
