Key Largo Vacation Adventure
Trips Are Fun And Eco-Friendly 

Hurricane Irma Update

The Florida Keys was strongly impacted when Hurricane Irma passed through, however the Florida Keys infrastructure is quickly being repaired and is mostly functional with many businesses operational.

The Florida Keys are expected to be fully open for business by October 1st and the Key West Fantasy Fest is set to go ahead as planned!

Don't let your fear of this hurricane's damage deter your Florida Keys vacation plans. Things are getting back to normal and there are lots of great activities happening every day you don't want to miss out on!

The Conch Republic's Spirit Stays Strong!


Key Largo vacation adventures include a variety of eco tours suitable for the whole family.

The themes of the eco tours also vary, as do the length of the adventure tours offered.

Some eco tours are self guided, while others are narrated.

However, the purpose of true eco tour companies are the same.

Educate those on a Florida Keys vacation so they will recognize what they see around them. Then, instill the value and importance of protecting the natural resources that attracted them to the Florida Keys in the first place.

Your holiday tours should include Key Largo eco tours like the self guided hiking trails at Dagny Johnson Key Largo Hammock Botanical State Park or the walking tour at the Butterfly Gardens adjacent to Crocodile Lake National Wildlife Refuge.

On your Key Largo vacation include full day guided kayaking trips out to the Everglades National Park. If time is a factor, you can also choose shorter kayaking tours that guide you around the mangrove lined islands, where you can see and learn about the local flora and fauna.

Other adventure tour companies provide Key Largo glass bottom boat trips at John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. You can also opt for snorkeling in Key Largo out to the Florida Keys coral reefs, or go on an eco tour to John Pennekamp snorkeling with the family.

If adventure vacations are what you're really interested in, there are air boat rides out to the Everglades National Park. Here you'll be able to see alligators up close and personal, and view a broad range of birds, fish, and other Florida wildlife.

Eco vacations should also include time learning about what happens when things go wrong. A visit to the Wild Bird Center, a rehabilitation facility is an eye opener you shouldn't miss.
