Some people dream of a white Christmas while others yearn for warm weather and endless sunshine. If you belong to the latter group, then we have some news for you. Mangrove Marina has everything you need to make this Christmas a memorable one during your Florida Keys vacation.

Christmas at Mangrove Marina

Our amenities are designed to ensure your comfort from the moment you arrive, including:

  • Our full-service marina

We offer an affordable alternative to conventional hotels, resorts, and similar vacation getaways while still featuring plenty of activities that are fun for the whole family.

Christmas Diving in the Keys

If the weather outside is frightful where you live, then Florida will be a delightful change of pace. Christmas in Florida is known for its cooler temperatures, and the water is fine, perfect for exploring pristine coral reefs and lush coastlines. The humidity has faded from the air, and everything feels light, fresh, and energetic. Are you ready to plan your Florida Keys vacation?

Start by building sandcastles instead of snowmen at Anne’s Beach in Islamorada, and then head out to John Pennekamp State Park to see the Christ of the Abyss. Molasses is an essential ingredient in gingerbread, but it is also an important reef, known for its colorful tropical fish and brilliant living coral. Make sure to schedule a guided trip to the Molasses Reef during your scuba adventure. While back home, your friends might be looking at colorful holiday lights, you can see colorful sea life at the Sombrero Reef, including fire, starlet, elkhorn, and pillar coral and parrotfish, angelfish, damselfish, and more. Who needs endless looping holiday music when you can sway with the rays at Looe Key?

In the evening, you can sip wine on the deck of your houseboat or liveaboard while dipping your toes in the protected waters of Mangrove Marina. On New Year’s Eve, take a moonlight cruise to sip champagne with your loved ones and ring in the new year.

Taking a scuba vacation in the Florida Keys might be a little unconventional, but you will make memories that will last a lifetime. Call Mangrove Marina today to learn more about our houseboat and wet slips rental or to make your reservations.
