Jules Underwater Hotel Key Largo FL Review

Updated on January 10, 2011

Jules' Undersea Lodge is truly unique accommodations in Key Largo Florida and has been featured on "Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous", in countless magazines and newspapers, and on every major television network in the world.

Although the underwater hotel may sound like the latest tourist fun spot, Jules' Undersea Lodge, actually began its existence as La Chalupa research laboratory, an underwater habitat used to explore the continental shelf off the coast of Puerto Rico.

When guests visit Jules’ Undersea Lodge in Key Largo, Florida, they discover that the name is no gimmick. Just to enter the Lodge, you must actually scuba dive 21 feet beneath the surface of the sea. Jules’ really is underwater. Diving through the tropical mangrove habitat of the Emerald Lagoon and approaching the world’s only underwater hotel is quite an experience. Even from the outside, Jules’ big 42 inch round windows cast a warm invitation to come in and stay a while, relax and get to know the underwater world that so few of us have even visited.

Jules Underwater Hotel in Key Largo Florida Information

Guests of the Lodge explore their marine environment with scuba gear provided by Jules' Undersea Lodge and are given an unlimited supply of tanks. It is the first and only underwater hotel, but is also the first under water research lab to have ever been made accessible to the average person.

Jules’ Undersea Lodge is a dream come true for dive enthusiasts who are looking to log a seemingly limitless dive. Guests who complete one of the luxury packages can log 22 hours in one night, and there is no limit to the number of nights they can stay. Even at 21 feet, dive times like these are not covered by the dive tables. Guests actually complete a “saturation” dive, which permits divers to spend extended time underwater as long as proper surfacing intervals are followed. For the shallow water saturation dives of Jules’ Undersea Lodge, guests are required to abstain from flying and must adhere to restrictions on further diving for 24 hours after they surface.
