This half-mile-long, crescent-shaped patch reef is an interesting dive site since it is highly developed and similar to those of most outer bank reefs in the Key Largo area.

Visited here twice with Pennekamp park. Loved every minute of it. Would be great if you had a boat of your own and knew how to get there. Wonderful snorkel with eagle rays and other fish.

We took our 8 year old son here for his first snorkeling experience and he loved it. It is very shallow in spots. A lot to see.

Fantastic spot for snorkeling. Since its mostly shallow this is a great spot for people who may not be the greatest swimmers unless seas are up. This is fun family spot

There are many live conch crawling around and farther out is a shallow reef with cannon to discover! Plenty of colorful reef fish. Great for kids on their first snorkel and adults too!

Grecian rocks is many miles off shore. You have to take a boat out to it.
