The Lagoon at Key Largo Undersea Park has something to offer the snorkeler, SCUBA diver candidate, SCUBA professional, or recreational diver!
Tour the tropical mangrove habitat of Key Largo Undersea Park’s Emerald Lagoon and explore the underwater world of the future. You will find a marine archaeology exhibit, the MarineLab underwater research and education habitat, and Jules’ Undersea Lodge, the first and only underwater hotel in the world.
Jules’ Undersea Lodge (formerly La Chalupa Research Lab) also served as the site of the historic 1995 sea-space link-up in which ocean pioneers Scott Carpenter and Ian Koblick spoke with astronaut Mike Gernhardt aboard the space shuttle Endeavour. Both Jules’ Undersea Lodge and the MarineLab have been used in research on extended space travel.
The lagoon is sheltered but is still considered an open water dive site. It’s 30 feet deep, and has platforms and down lines for SCUBA training. The world famous PADI organization utilizes Jules’ Lagoon and Key Largo Undersea Park for its exams. We have witnessed hundreds of new instructors at Jules’ Lagoon.
Besides being an excellent place for learning to snorkel or dive, the Lagoon is home to Jules’ Undersea Lodge, the world’s only underwater hotel where your scuba dive to your room.
