John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park is located in the Florida Keys and was the first underwater park in the United States, having been established in 1963. When I visited I went on a glass-bottomed boat ride over the reef. The ride out started by navigating through the network of mangroves along the shore. It was very interesting, but my pictures did not turn out very well, and I would have preferred to go snorkeling or diving in the reef.
