John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park

John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park

Underwater and spanning 70 nautical miles, John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park is unlike any other park in Florida. Like many parks it offers picnicking, fishing, canoeing, swimming at the beach, and tropical hammocks. What sets it apart is the coral reef resting just below its waters. For those looking to get a view of life under the waves there are tours with glass bottomed boats and kayaking tours available. But adventure-seekers wanting to see up close what this sunken site has to offer have access to snorkeling and scuba-diving. Anyone who is interested in the park but not getting wet can view the many nature videos and salt-water aquariums on the park's campus.
