Overview

This half-mile-long, crescent-shaped patch reef is an interesting dive site since it is highly developed and similar to those of most outer bank reefs in the Key Largo area.

Went out snorkeling with Sail, Fish, Scuba... got very lucky and had a pod of dolphins join us for some water play while we were snorkeling. Saw couple of reef sharks too. Had a very lucky day at sea here.

Snorkeled here on Monday 3/26 - was pleased to see corals coming back after Irma. Perhaps not as many fish, but it was great viewing.

Great place to go when conditions are a bit rough as corral wall provides some shelter. Beautiful tropical fish in abundance.

We went snorkeling here in December and could see several types of fish. The rocks are visible during low tide. We went during high tide and they were completely submerged. Many barracuda were nearby here.

We went a snorkel trip to Christ of the Deep and Grecian Rocks. Christ of the Deep is in deeper water and Grecian Rocks is a shallow location. Both sites have plenty of fish and beautiful Coral Reefs.
