Visit an eco-tour outfitter in the Keys and chances are you’ll be looking out the window at such environmentally fascinating places as Key Largo, where freshwater from the Everglades mixes with the saltwater of Florida Bay. Travel south to the Middle and Lower Keys beyond the Seven Mile Bridge, and the islands suddenly take a westerly turn toward the sunset and the glistening waters of the fabled Lower Keys backountry.
For those who do not kayak or canoe, there are also tour boat operators who are happy to introduce you to the wildlife and wilderness. Explore all of the eco-friendly Keys:
The Lower Keys:
In the Lower Keys, KeysCaribbean Luxury Resorts & Marinas has the Coral Hammock Resort Villas and Kings Point Marina & Condominiums vacation rentals
Windley Key Fossil Reef Geological State Park, located at MM 84.9, was formed of Key Largo limestone and fossilized coral. It was sold to the Florida East Coast Railroad in 1908 for $852.80, and quarries were created to supply thousands of tons of fill for bridges and the railbed of Henry Flagler’s OverSea Railroad. The quarry was used until the 1960s to produce exquisite pieces of decorative stone called Keystone. Today, kids can walk along eight-foot-high quarry walls to see cross-sections of fossilized ancient coral and preserved quarry machinery, or stroll along one of five nature trails. Also perfect for picnics, the spot is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
