Great for the whole family.

Very special place indeed. Besides the statue the reef is amazing! Well worth the travel. I saw divers there and snorkelers there with families.

Only thing to see is the Jesus statute. Not worth the time to tie up to the mooring. There are many more interesting sites.

A very nice reef but very crowded because all of the boats that you can go out for the day on go there....stay on the opposite side of the reef, away from the statue...that way you will see all type of fish, soft and hard corals, and it isn't busy.

I really liked this area for a snorkeling trip. It was not crowded and the sea life was beautiful. Would recommend it to any experience level.

Great dive spot as in all of Key Largo. There is an area where it is shallow enough to take SCUBA Rangers with the proper dive master.

Water conditions and clarity were not the best, but I did always want to see the Christ statue of the Abyss. This was our second stop of the day, with a nicer reef than the farther north rocks.

I was actually impressed by the reef, though the actual variety of fish that we saw there was a little disappointing.

Husband and I did tour from john pennenkamp to reef. Waters very choppy but so worth it. Snorkel around reef and great pictures/video. A must do if like water sports. Take an underwater camera as you do not want to forget.

This was a cool place to go snorkeling, but it wasn't as good as the first place we went (and I wish I could remember what it was called). The best thing about this was the Christ statue. Not as many colorful or big fish here...at least not on our day of snorkeling.

First of all, not sure where the photo came from, north dry rocks is a coral reef offshore of key largo. It is not the location of the Christ statue either, that is on dry rocks. This particular reef will have depths between 7' and 20' and is the location for minnow caves. Durning the summer months, the cave fills... More
