Key Largo is only about 1hr away, some very good boats you can go out on to the reefs.

Google "key Largo snorkle charters" and enjoy.

I was down there last month, rented a 24ft boat for me and my family, went to Molasses reef and the Elbow, my 8yo was so happy to see sharks

also, about an hour north is Phil Foster state park, its in Riveria Beach, right in the intercoastal, took my 18yo to that last year, few artificial reefs, 3 statues of hammer heads a couple boats, all within 100yds of the beach in about 15 feet of water

To collect you need a fishing license. There are limits to what you can collect and how much. No hard coral is allowed at all and some restrictions on soft corals.
