Underwater Photo Essay: The Spectacular Florida Keys

On my recent trip to the Florida Keys to cross of a few items off my list of best diving in the world, I got to meet some awesome people as well. For my dives on Molasses reef, it was the awesome people at Sail Fish Scuba in Key Largo.

It was nice to dive with a smaller operation that only takes small groups, and they also gave all their guides underwater cameras, and gave everyone copies of the photos from the dives afterwards! Great idea, and some of the pics here are from that!

From their location in Key Largo, they can take you to any of the popular dive sites in the areas, and have great boats and guides to do it. We had good luck with the weather, and got in quite a few dives!

I did put together a more comprehensive guide to diving the Keys, but I’ll sum it up here. There are two giant wrecks in the Keys (among others), that you don’t want to miss: Vandenberg and the Spiegle Grove.

They are semi deep wrecks, but can be done by Advanced certified divers when weather is good. I believe Vandenberg is the 2nd or 3rd biggest purposely sunk wreck in the world, and both make for a sweet dive.

Besides that, the rest is nice reef dives, besides a few smaller wrecks here and there. Probably the best one being Molasses Reef, where I ran into a few eagle rays, lots of little sharks, and a lot of fan corals.

Of course you will want to see the Christ the Redeemer statue, and get an underwater selfie with that as well.

Below are just some of the shots I got this week, and stay tuned for more!
