I loved this. First time diving at a reef and I saw a great variety of fish and coral. Grouper and Tilefish were abundant. Also saw Puffers. Worked up an appetite for a yummy Grouper fillet for dinner at Key Largo fisheries.

If you want to see the statue of Christ, then this is a great snorkeling or dive spot, but there isn't much more to see here.

North Dry Rocks is a good dive/snorkel reef located in the heart of what was formerly known as John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. If you see the Christ Statue at this reef, it is a miracle because the bronze Jesus resides in a ravine...More

Great area to dive with experience and beginner divers The reef was tremendous and the people at Horizon Divers were a great added help on the dive.

This is a good reef, but the star is the Christ of the Abyss statue. This is a fairly deep reef for snorkeling and quite crowded.

The tropical fish and coral reef are stunning! There is a great diversity and the reef is fairly shallow here so you really have a great view as a snorkeler.

The viz at this site was good and the reefs were fairly shallow. Nice easy dive site with good visibility. We did the North Dry Rocks after the Speigel Grove and it was a nice way to finish the day.

Good but not as great as the sites around Molasses Reef. Worth it if you have extra time/$. Otherwise, prioritize exploring Molasses.

Clear, mostly calm waters for this dive. Warm water temps. Lots of coral and fish to view. Lots of fun.
