We went a snorkel trip to Christ of the Deep and Grecian Rocks. Christ of the Deep is in deeper water and Grecian Rocks is a shallow location. Both sites have plenty of fish and beautiful Coral Reefs.

But not anymore! (and if you get the Cake reference, congratulations, you get a point). Dry Rocks is a great reef. Unfortunately, with climate change, ocean acidification, and thousands of tourists whom feel entitled to touch things they shouldn't be touching the reef is not-so-slowly...More

Our girls snorkeled the Christ of the Deep Statue this past summer. They really enjoyed it as first time snorkelers. Would definitely do this again

Really nice reef. Lots of colorful fish. Had a great time snorkeling. Short boat ride from the park.

This was a snorkeling stop and there were lots of other snorkelers around. A little too busy for my taste but, it is an easy swim even though there are lots of boats sharing the experience. I think it is a traditional stop if you're...More

I have never seen anything like this in my life. The statue is absolutely amazing. All I could do is just stare. This statue will take your breathe away. The beauty words cannot not express.

The family joined our 12 year old on his open water check out dive to view this statue. Our new diver accomplished his skill tests and the rest of us checked an item off our bucket list. Pretty statue, easy dive site, not much marine...More

My daughter went snorkeling there yesterday and was able to dive down without scuba gear. It's roughly 20 feet deep but when the tide is low, it's a little easier. It's worth the trip.

If you are a diver, then this is something you got to see at least once, but that's just to say you did it. It makes for a great photo, but as far as dives go, there are many other areas within a few miles...More

We scubaed with Amoray. There were snorkelers onboard sometimes, but my impression is that the boat was dedicated more to scuba in terms of the depths and sites we visited. If you just want to visit the Christ of the Deep... More

No, the statue is about a 30 minute boat ride out. There are cannons just off the beach at John Pennekamp State Park. The boat trip only cost about $30.00 per person from the park. They limit their numbers so it is not over... More
