In the middle of the Gulf of Mexico, 100 miles away from land, and rising from the ocean floor are salt domes which house a gorgeous community of pristine coral and other sea life. It is a marine sactuary that was discovered by fishermen in the 1800s. Due to the amazing color seen from the boats, it became known as the Flower Gardens. Loggerhead turtles are year-round residents. You will see 200+ fish species.
