An annual celebration of marine conservation! REEF Fest features diving, snorkeling, kayaking, ocean-themed seminars, educational programs, and social events. You're invited to share your love for the ocean and learn about the latest in conservation. Most REEF Fest events are free, but pre-registration is requested. Join us this fall in the Florida Keys to celebrate the oceans!
This annual event for both divers and snorkelers is staged at Looe Key Reef, an area of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary about 6 miles south of Big Pine Key. Hosted by the Lower Keys Chamber of Commerce and a local radio station, US1 104.1 FM, the ocean celebration encourages environmentally responsible diving and preservation of the world’s coral reefs. While the festival’s primary purpose is to promote reef protection and eco-conscious diving, it also offers a bucket-list underwater experience. Some participants might even spot “mermaids” and other costumed characters swaying beneath the waves, adding visual excitement to the unique conservation concert.
