4. Red Reef Park
1400 N Ocean Blvd; Boca Raton; 561.393.7974
South Florida’s got some of the best snorkeling in the country, but, unless you’ve got a friend with a boat, or you’re Sonny Crockett and you live on one, the best spots are off limits to you. Except for at Red Reef Park in Boca, where you can abandon your cooler on the beach and waddle into the water to check out the rock reef and more tropical fish than that thing behind home plate at the Marlins games.
