REEF Fest 2022 is coming up on October 13-16, and we hope you'll come celebrate with us in Key Largo! Explore the coral reefs and mangroves of the Florida Keys and learn about ocean life on a dive, snorkel, or kayak trip at REEF Fest.

We have reserved dedicated boat charters with local operators including Key Dives, Quiescence Diving Services, and Amoray Dive Resort. Each boat will have a REEF representative onboard, with REEF survey materials available for you to use during the trip. This is a great opportunity to your fish identification skills and participate in citizen science. Diving and snorkeling is offered on the mornings of Thursday, Oct. 13, Friday, Oct. 14, and Saturday, Oct. 15.

You can also join in a guided kayak tour led Florida Bay Outfitters. Tours are offered on the mornings of Friday, Oct. 14 and Saturday, Oct. 15, and are great for beginners or experienced paddlers alike. Tours include all rental equipment, a lesson on paddling techniques, snacks, and water.

It’s easy to sign up for diving, snorkeling, or kayaking. There’s no need to contact any tour operators to reserve your space. You can book your space when you register online for REEF Fest. Spaces are filling fast, so be sure to book your eco-excursions soon! REEF Fest also includes free ocean seminars, evening social events with food and drink, a nature tour, and a silent auction.
