I went snorkeling with my family, and it was decent, but I found that the reef being 20+ feet below the surface made seeing anything up close difficult. I’m sure this would be a fabulous site for divers, since they can go deep and see everything up close, but as for snorkeling, I was a tiny bit disappointed. Besides that, we were able to see a turtle at the surface and some fish which was great!

We were taken here by glass-bottomed boat, but the reef is very sick and there were no fish or other sea life.

Loved this reef. Not too deep, nice and colorful, teeming with fish, sharks, turtles, lots to see! Ask your dive shop where the goliath Grouper is!

We dove several reefs along Key Largo. Although it is often the busiest reef, for a reason, Molasses Reef has the most abundant fish life.

Pretty dive. Would place it in the top 5 of my 40 years of diving.
Going on this dive with Buddha was the best.
