North Dry Rocks
North Dry Rocks is home to Minnow Cave, where thousands of Silversides come to visit in the summertime. There's nothing quite like swimming through a cave packed with minnows. Truly a unique experience.

USCG Duane 2
Hailed by many as the best wreck dive in the Atlantic, the USCG Duane is a wonderful advanced dive. Unlike other large wreck dives, you can explore the entirety of the Duane in one dive.

Molasses Reef 1
With 30+ mooring buoys, Molasses Reef has plenty to explore and is one of the premiere Key Largo dive sites. You can stick close to the tower for some snorkeling or venture into Deep Molasses. Be sure to check out the historic Winch Hole near mooring buoy #8.

Benwood Wreck
A natural WWII wreck, the Benwood is a fascinating site to explore. Bursting with wildlife, and at a relatively shallow depth (45ft), this wreck is one of a kind. If you have time, do a night dive here.


City of Washington
A WWI era wreck, the City of Washington is located further out into the Gulf Stream, blessing it with great visibility. Large goliath grouper hang out here with a native moray eel. Be sure to explore the rest of surrounding Elbow Reef. A stunning spot.

Snorkeling on Grecian Rocks in the Florida Keys
Grecian Rocks is a snorkelers paradise. Even in bad weather and rough seas you can find calm areas of Grecian to explore, since the reef acts as a barrier. Keep your eyes peeled for schools of colorful parrotfish, and roaming curious barracuda. If you want to dive, go to the south end and look for neighboring Banana Reef.

Spiegel Grove
The hulking USS Spiegel Grove is another flagship spot for divers visiting the Florida Keys. At over 500 feet in length, you'll need to do multiple dives to really explore this massive artificial reef.

Tiger Shark Sighting 1
This morning our good friend Troy Wheatley from Horizon Divers spotted a large Tiger Shark chowing down on a turtle, and he was able to nab some video of the encounter. As you can read in his description, he was a mere 1.68 miles inshore from Grecian Rocks! Exciting sighting.
