Miami is known for its miles of pristine, sandy beaches that attract people from all over the world. Just offshore, underneath the Atlantic Ocean, is the third-largest barrier reef in the world. Take a snorkeling excursion to explore the wonders of the coral reef and the abundant marine life that dwells there.
