In August 2012 I flew to Key West with some friends to go snorkeling on the third biggest reef in the world. The ocean was like glass as we approached Key West.

Flying to Key West from Tampa requires flying over 130 miles of ocean. Everyone wears a life vest and we brought a life raft.

The ocean was calm and the flight was easy and quick.

We booked a snorkel tour and walked the island while on the visit to Key West.

The reef itself was fun to swim. We even saw a water spout off shore.
