Glass Bottom Boat Tours & Rentals
Glass Bottom Boat Tours | Florida State Parks
Glass bottom boat tours allow close-up viewing of coral reef systems. In the Florida Keys, it's all about water. This collection of islands sprinkled along either side of the Overseas Highway covers aquatic territory in both the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico. Getting out onto these famous bodies of water is a prized pursuit of almost every traveler who ventures across the 42 bridges spanning the highway south of Miami to Key West. Glass bottom boat tours top the list of eco-friendly attractions and draw tourists longing to glide through pristine coral reef and protected mangroves. Glass bottom boat tours in the Florida Keys escort visitors to the waters above North America's only living barrier coral reef system, which is also the third largest in the world. Boat operators hold permits to enter the marine sanctuary, allowing passengers to view a vast system of reef-building corals, including brain, star, elk horn and staghorn, as well as a multitude of living organisms and over fish species.
Glass Bottom Boats at Silver Springs State Park in Florida
In the park you can take a trip on a glass bottom boat and view the fresh springs pouring forth sweet, cool water from the Florida aquifer. If you need more information about all this, check out my post from last time. Because of Springsfest at the park and the tourists it had drawn in before us, we had to wait around a couple of hours to board the boats. But my primary reason for being there that day was the glass bottom boat tour. We dutifully stood in line just before 3pm; it was one of those zig-zaggy snake queues with four lines next to each other.
