  Marathon - John Pennekamp Coral Reef Park
by ant1606

From this location depart glass-bottom boats that in about one hour reach the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Here the coral reef is visible, at least what's left of it. In the recent years there has been a great reduction of living star and brain corals activity.
These two parks are adjacent and are the first underwater parks established in the country to protect and preserve a portion of the only living coral reef in the continental US.
Park visitor center provides comprehensive information.
