Along with Molasses Reef, the Christ of the Abyss statue is one of the most visited dive spots in Key Largo. This 9-foot tall bronze statue of Christ rests in 25 feet of water, and was created by Italian sculptor Guido Galletti. It was donated to John Pennekamp Park in 1965. Christ of the Deep is a copy of the Christ of the Abyss statue, which resides in the Mediterranean Sea near Genoa, Italy. This reef is excellent for both scuba diving and snorkeling, and part of the reef comes out of the water at low tide.
