Product Overview

Franko's Florida Mini Map and Coral Reef Creatures Identification Guide
Franko loves Florida, having first visited on official government business on a trip to Fort Walton Beach around 1992. Franko attended the Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show, DEMA dive shows at Miami and Orlando, Biscayne National Park, Everglades National Park, the Florida Keys, from end to end, plus he drove east-to-west and north to south across the state. That means that he is just getting started in knowing this fabulous state. After years of thinking about making Franko Map products for the great State of Florida, Franko finally put together a Florida mini-map and coral reef creature's identification guide, which shows a beautiful map of Florida on side 1 and a wonderful array of over 100 species of coral reef creatures on side 2.

Franko loves every part of Florida that he has explored so far from the Gulf Coast's incredibly white sand, to the beautiful beach-front condominiums in Fort Lauderdale and Miami, to the very end of the Overseas Highway, where you look out to sea from the Southernmost Point in the Continental United States" and Key West. After exploring and diving the Florida Keys, and making a map and fish identification guide for the The Conch Republic," it was only right to do the same for the entire great State of Florida. This is one of Franko's most beautiful products, because the green State of Florida sits against a sea showing the descending hues of the undersea bathymetry. The undersea contours of the Florida Plateau and the Gulf of Mexico on one side, and the Continental Shelf, the Florida Straits, and the Bahamas Banks on the other are a most interesting and visually powerful way to depict Florida. It was an idea that worked!

The map side (side 1) of this (H x L) 6" x 9" (15.24cm x 22.9cm) card is a beautiful mini map showing the State of Florida, with the main roads and cities, and dozens of Florida's most prominent dive locations, including both coasts, the Florida Keys and many of the famous springs that are unique to Florida. Having visited and gone out on diving boats as well as snorkeling and kayaking in a variety of Florida spots, Franko can understand why so many people have urged him to do Florida." Florida could be called the diving capital of the world. The number of sites and the accessibility makes Florida a world-class diving and snorkeling destination. Also on the map side is a world globe and a compass rose. Franko loves Florida. The coral reef creature's side of this map (side 2) is similar to his Caribbean reef creature's guides, since in general they share the same array of coral reef creatures, including corals and sponges. The card shows over 100 species on this waterproof Florida Keys Coral Reef Creatures Identification Guide. It seems only right that he show the names of all of these creatures (criaturas) in both English and Espaol. Special thanks to his daughter, who teaches Spanish, for helping with the translations and accents. He hopes this enables even more people to love the coral reef creatures of Florida.

He would also like to point out a creature that he could not help but place on this map, and that is the manatee (manat). Franko loves the manatee (as does everyone). What a wonderful and special creature Florida has! The manatee is a great representative of the love and respect that he hopes to inspire with his Florida maps and coral reef creature's identification guides. Card is printed on laminated plastic so that it is stiff, shiny and waterproof. It has a hole for a lanyard, so you can actually take it diving or snorkeling. Card makes a great gift idea.
