We went to the Western Dry Rocks with Island Adventure. We've been snorkling in many places. We thought the variety and colors of the coral were the best we've seen. There was a great variety of fish some in schools. Great trip.

Went to the WDR on Seaduction Dive shops boat. Had a great dive with the family. Plenty of marine life to see. Must do for divers in Key West.

Because its a little further out, the commercial snorkel boats don't come here so you'll probably have it to yourself. Its not protected so you can spearfish here or grab a lobster.Can be a bit rolly in any wind.
