The first undersea park in the United States, John Pennekamp Coral Reef State
Park, and the adjacent Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, cover
approximately 178 nautical square miles of coral reefs, seagrass beds and
mangrove swamps. The park extends 3 miles into the Atlantic Ocean and is
approximately 25 miles in length.
These areas were established to protect and preserve a portion of the only
living coral reef in the continental United States.
The park is named for the late John D. Pennekamp, a Miami newspaper editor,
whose efforts contributed to the establishment of Everglades National Park and
the preservation of what would become John Pennekamp Coral Reef State
Park.

Hours of Operation
Florida state parks are open from 8 a.m. until sundown 365 days a year.
