Below are detailed maps of the Southeast Florida Reef Tract. FOFR focuses on the Southeast FL Coral Reef Initiative (SEFCRI) Zone -- approximately 105 miles of reefs located just offshore between Miami-Dade County (top of Biscayne National Park) north to Martin County (Port St. Lucie), including the coasts of Broward and Palm Counties. As of Mid-2018, this area is also legally known as the SE Florida Coral Reef Ecosystem Conservation Area. The entire reef tract extends more than 350 miles south through the FL Keys to the Dry Tortugas, making it one of the major barrier reef systems in the world.
