Key Largo is called the Dive Capital of the World. Navigational charts show that the coral reef chain is well developed from Elliott Key to just north of Key Largo for nearly 7 miles to the southern border of Key Largo. The chain of reefs begins again in the Atlantic off Big Pine Key to the south beyond Key West. Between these areas the reefs are not as large or well developed due to the geographical features of the keys and passes between.
The most famous dive spot off Key Largo is Key Largo Dry Rocks which is off John Pennekamp State Park, home to the Christ of the Deep statue.
Grecian Rocks, French Reef, White Bank Dry Rocks, Sand Island, Molasses Reef, Three sisters & Wolf Reef, Pickles Reef & Snapper Ledge, Conch Reef, Davis Reef, Hens & Chickens, Crocker Reef, Cheeca Rocks, and Alligator Reef are all beautiful dives with varying fishes and corals dependent on the depth.
The San Pedro, The Eagle, the USCG’s Bibb & Duane, the Benwood Wreck, and the Spiegel Grove are all sunken vessels at varying depths.
