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.

We got to swim in a school of beautiful, luminous purple fish in clear water over an amazing reef. Lots of fish of all sizes. Beautiful corals. We got lucky with the conditions--incredibly clear and calm. Just a mesmerizing snorkel. No problem sharing it with a few divers as there was plenty of room for all.

I went snorkeling and saw more lobster than I had ever seen before. It makes me want to go back during lobster season.

We loved diving Molasses Reef with Key Largo Dive Center. Captain Larry and our Dive Master Max were the BEST crew! Our family (4) has only recently taken up scuba, so having professionals like KLDC to help us get the most out of Molasses Reef is highly recommended. We saw soooooo many fish, plus some nurse sharks, and a few turtles, the Spanish anchor, the wreck of the SS Benwood, and a couple of great sunsets heading back to Key Largo Fisheries where KLDC docks their boat. The Reef is NOT to be missed. Snorkel it, view it by glass bottom boat, or best of all, swim with the schools of fish from 25-40 feet deep as a diver. You'll love it.
