Reef Reports

Below is a listing of reef reports that our captains fill out while on-site at the various reefs, wrecks and walls we dive. This is by far the most accurate reef report in the Florida Keys, and some even include pictures for visual indication of the conditions. We use all of this information every day to help plan the best dive trips for you.

    Over 60 feet of visibility out on Pickles Reef. Divers spotted a few pickle barrels! Fun Fact: Sharks have a sense called electrosense, which is the ability to sense electric signals. This gives them an advantage when searching for prey. #keysstrong
