The Florida Keys are the exposed portions of what was once a coral reef. With that in mind, it’s pretty easy to see how and why it seems like such an exotic escape from Florida itself. At their northernmost point, the Keys are just fifteen miles from Miami. And from its most southern point, Key West is just 90 miles from Cuba. This is all to say that the archipelago feels more like the center of the Caribbean than a part of the United States.
On top of all this, the area is a thriving environment for marine life. People come from all over the world to visit its protected waters, where scuba diving and fishing are major players in the local economy. Yellowtail, blackfin tuna, wahoo, kingfish — you name it, you can chase it in these waters. Here, our friends at Kaenon give a look inside why parts of the region make this place recognized as the Sportfishing Capital of the World.
And now we all want to go on a fishing trip to the Keys.
