The Florida Keys is an archipelago of coral islands off the southern tip of Florida and just 90 miles from Cuba. The region includes the Everglades National Park to the north and Fort Jefferson - Dry Tortugas National Park, which sits 70 miles out to sea in the Gulf of Mexico (the most remote and inaccessible National Park). In this uniquely delivered webinar with live action video reels from onsite locations, ATTA partners will showcase features such as the USA's only living coral barrier reef, "voluntourism" opportunities restoring the reef, diving for treasure with the Fisher family on the shipwreck site Atocha, haunted ghost tours, and more.
What will be covered:
5 unique regions that comprise the Keys: Key Largo, Islamorada, Marathon, The Lower Keys (also called "the Natural Keys") as well as world-famous Key West
Diving, snorkeling, kiteboarding, sailing, kayaking, and cultural attractions
Famous authors who have resided here, from Robert Frost to Ernest Hemingway to Tennessee Williams
The "Wrecking" industry that made Key West the richest city per capita in the USA in the 1800s and the marvel of the "Overseas Railroad" built in the early 1900s
