The Florida Keys—home to the only living coral barrier reef in the United States and the third largest in the world—attract underwater explorers from near and far. While scuba diving requires more equipment and instruction, snorkeling is both easy and accessible, even for youngsters. Gear rentals are included with your stay, and the experts at Postcard Inn Beach Resort’s Islamorada Dive Center (accessible via the resort shuttle) are a great resource for all of the best places to see rainbow-colored reefs bustling with life.
The closest snorkeling destination to the resort is Alligator Reef (about four miles offshore), where you see hundreds of species of fish, coral and sponges and admire the eponymous lighthouse that marks the area. Further afield, Davis, Crocker and Victory reefs are also popular spots; the friendly staff at Pelican Cove is happy to recommend outfitters offering excursions to these areas.
Looking for even more adventure? Our complimentary shuttle will transport guests to attractions within a four-mile radius of the resort, as well as our sister properties in Islamorada. Their resort amenities are also open to Pelican Cove guests, so you can explore four resorts with Pelican Cove as your home base during your stay.
