This park is huge. After you get out of your automobile, take a tour of the area to see all the options for fun. Most people focus only on the beaches. There are some very Scenic pathways that go throughout the island and into the mangrove system. The pathways are very shady and entertaining to do. The price of entrance into the park is a drop in the bucket for what you get. This place is fantastic.
We would recommend this park to anybody that's visiting Key Largo. It is located up approximately at mile marker 102. The best thing to do is the Kayaking. There is a special kayak launch area and they have rentals if you are not bringing your own kayak. The waterways are well marked and you can go out to the ocean.
We had a lot of fun here at Pennekamp. The reef trips go out every hour or so. They have different types of boats depending on the experience you are looking for out on the reefs. Some boats here are for scuba trips only. Most of the trips are snorkeling for families and are very easy to do.
