One of the lower Keys most original annual events is the Underwater Music Festival. Continental Americas only living coral reef is the site of the event, at which hundreds of divers and snorkelers explore the reef while symphonies are piped in from high quality underwater speakers. This years event will take place in the Looe Key section of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, six miles south of Big Pine Key, and run from 10 AM to 2 PM. Dozens of private boats will be attending, but also charters and tour boats are offering special trips to enjoy this original Keys experience. For more information click here.
It’s 83°F and sunny today at Parrot Key. Southeast wind at 11mph is creating some small chop on the ocean, but nothing prohibitive to water sports. If you are considering doing something on the ocean today would be a great choice, there are predictions of thunderstorms for the rest of the week, so get in your boating while you can. Sunset tonight will be at 8:19 and festivities at Mallory Square are expected to start around 5:30.
