 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): You don't have to go far from the boat to see a large variety of animals of all sizes. Located in the National Marine Sanctuary, it is a protected reef, so no worries about tangles with spears or hooks; and very large game fish abound! Weekends do bring in a fair amount of divers, but there is enough to see in all directions so crowding can be avoided.

- Very nice reef, lots of reef fish.

- Not the best dive site for what Florida has to offer. I did for real fall asleep in the water about 30' of water. I found a spot just under the boat laid back into the sand and the next thing I knew I was Almost out of air. As I woke up there was 100s of Barracuda around me I opened my buddy regulator and surfaced. Thank God. this is for real.
