Home to the continental United States' only coral barrier reef, the Florida Keys is an ideal vacation destination, especially for avid divers. While the Florida Keys are located closer to Cuba than Miami, this remains the southernmost area of Florida. Not only are the Florida Keys commonly known for their natural beauty, cultural diversity, and comfortable climate, but also for the many outdoor activities there are to partake in. What was once an inspirational oasis for famous authors and artists such as Ernest Hemingway and Jimmy Buffet, has now become a popular destination for vacationers to travel to. See all the Florida Keys has to offer and why it's become so desired.
The Florida Keys contain the United States' only coral barrier reef making it a popular place for diving and snorkeling. The coral formations found here are famous for their abundance of fish and marine life. They've even developed a sanctuary for the marine habitat known as the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Animal and ocean conservation is huge here so preserving the marine habitat is a major focus in the area. Many visitors enjoy sightseeing during the day as well as taking part in diving, snorkeling, watersports, fishing, and golfing. You can expect to see large schools of fish swimming along the coral reefs as well as barracuda and even sea turtles.
Once the sun starts to set, the Florida Keys hold a sunset celebration every night at the Mallory Square in Key West. Here, you can see tight-rope walkers, jugglers, and animal acts performing as the sun sets into the Gulf of Mexico. There are also several local stages where dramas, musicals, and comedies are performed for anyone to watch. And if that isn't enough excitement, there are also plenty of restaurants, bars, and nightly events that provide fun after the sun goes down.
The Florida Keys is the perfect place to experience Amphi. That's why we decided to test our underwater device right here. Its hybrid design will help you discover the richness of the underwater world. You will be able to move over the coral reef with ease and for a longer period of time, as Amphi will do all the work for you. We are planning to equip our bionic monofin with a device called MyGaya. This device will be able to collect ocean temperature, pressure, and salinity data when you swim or dive, turning Amphi into an environmental data collection system. This way not only will you have fun, but you will also become a citizen scientist! Connect with Amphi Americas to learn more!
