This Florida Barrier Reef Is The Coolest Thing You’ll Ever See For Free

When most people hear the phrase “barrier reef” then tend to picture the more well-known one off the coast of northeastern Australia that just so happens to be the largest living thing on this planet. However, what many visitors to Florida do not know is that there is a coral barrier reef right along the coast of Florida that is just as fascinating, and is free for those who have the means to do some deep sea diving toward natural beauty.
