My friend and I went out on their new snorkeling service. Just 6 people made a delightful trip out. The sea fans, finger and brain coral and fish were the most spectacular I've ever seen. The two guys were super friendly. A great day!

From Highway 1 in Homestead, head east 8.75 miles on SW 328th street. You will run right into the park visitor center.
