Amazing array of fish of every size and color. We snorkeled a combination of open water and protected reefs. Great place to dive!

I have been snorkeling here in the past, but I just recently got my scuba certification and I dive here several times. The reef is relatively shallow but full of a verity of sea life. I saw several nurse sharks, puffer fish, grouper, stingrays, eels...More

Location has mooring balls and is a nice fun place to see some turtles and grab a fun shallow dive. As time went on it began to get a little crowded so go early!

This was an awesome shallow dive site with tons of different sea life. We saw several sea turtles, nurse sharks, cudas and a 6 ft wide ray. We spent several hours underwater here this week. Great trip. A must do.

Went over on our boat as recommended. Easy to attach to the buoy and not too busy. Did some snorkelling but not as great as we expected.

This is a part of the Florida Keys Nature Preserve. It is a beautiful section of reef to which dive trips and snorkeling trips go. We spent over an hour snorkeling and fish watching as well as admiring the beauty of this natural reef.

I typically rent a boat from All Aboard Rentals in Marathon. It's a quick trip and good for snorkelers too!
