This is not a dive site. It is a tourist attraction. Nothing to see here but the statue covered in fire coral. We ended up following the reef south and found some life but not much.
Christ of the Abyss is actually the correct name of this statue that was donated by the Cressi family. This statue is one of four created by an Italian sculptor which are placed in various locations around the world. The 4000 pound statue is situated in very shallow water--depths of about 18 feet make it a great snorkeling site. The... More
I would give this a better review, except the day we went, there were high seas, and the visibility was poor. However, I could tell the coral was beautiful, and the Statue would be great to see
Actual statue is interesting to visit, but for diving it is highly over rated. The site is very busy and you're likely to run into other divers. Best avoid this until you've exhausted all the other wonderful reefs and wrecks.
Better in person than in pictures. We took a tour with Keys Diver. Great deal, great snorkeling. One of the deeper reefs which allows for some really awesome sea life. Spent about 45 minutes at the Christ of the Deep. Saw reef shark, turtles, awesome fish. Highly recommend if in the keys
Plenty of fish and undersea life, Christ statue is interesting and covered in corals. If you have only one chance to go snorkeling in the upper keys, this is a great choice.
We weren’t even diving or snorkeling due to two year old twins but were on a ‘glass bottom’ boat tour of the reefs. I didn’t even know this statue was part of the tour but you see it on so many things that when I looked down directly above it, I immediately knew what it was. Pretty cool!
You must snorkel/dive here. In fact take as many snorkel trips as you can...the "experience" is out in the water when your in the Keys!
