Diving

Oh, and scuba diving’s good for you too!

Active divers tend to be adventuresome sorts who love the sea, visiting new places and meeting fellow scuba enthusiasts. The Keys give divers the opportunity to make new friends from all different cultures and walks of life and to stay involved in a hobby that is good for them.
