January 30, 2018 Off By admin
It’s all about the water in Key West, and February offers the perfect balance of clear skies, calm water, and sunshine to justify a weekend hop down to one of Ernest Hemingway’s favorite southerly hideouts. These days, tour operators and hotels are encouraging travelers to get out and explore the gorgeous marine ecosystems that surround the islands. At Oceans Edge Resort, on Stock Island, guests can dive right in with the dolphins and sea turtles, thanks to a comprehensive list of aquatic activities ranging from kayaking and paddleboard meditation to jetskiing and scuba diving.
