The Neptune Memorial Reef is located 3.25 miles east of Key Biscayne. This is a boat-accessed dive site. To reach the snorkeling in southeast Florida by air, there are several options. The most popular option is to fly into Miami International Airport (MIA), which is served by all major US and international airlines. Also nearby, a potentially lower cost option is to fly into Ft Lauderdale airport (FLL). From either of these airports, you can rent a car to drive to the dive site, but watch out for automated cash-less toll highways along the way.
