SPANISH ANCHOR ON MOLASSES REEF
One of our favorite dives on Key Largo is Spanish Anchor on Molasses Reef. Due to ts proximity to the Gulf Stream, this reef has some of the best visibility in the area. The coral-encusted anchor measuring 10 feet in length lies in one of the most pristine sections of Molasses Reef, and in addition to passing pelagics, divers will likely spot creatures including turtles, nurse sharks and southern stingrays.
Best of all, with an average depth of only 25 feet (8 meters), this dive site is accessible to divers of all experience and qualification levels. It’s a wonderful place to start your exploration of the Florida Keys’ marine ecosystem, and the perfect showcase of why these islands are so enamored by divers all over the world.
