Looe Key Reef National Marine Sanctuary

Among the most beautiful wreck reefs in the Keys, Looe Key is named after the HMS Looe, a British frigate that ran aground in 1744—look for the anchor, as most of the ship has disintegrated. This marine sanctuary is home to a wide array of fish, coral, sea fans, turtles, rays, and a high concentration of spiny lobsters, which are protected here.
Don’t miss the Annual Underwater Music Festival at Looe Key, when special “subsea optimized” programming is broadcast through underwater speakers for the enjoyment of divers and fish alike. In July; call (305) 872-2411 for more information
