We snorkeled at Dry Rocks late September and ours was the only tour boat out there. Pretty coral and lots of different types of fish. I don't really get the statue, but it was fun to swim around with all the fish, big and small.

Unless you are forced to come here, don't request it. Skip this one and go to North North Dry Rocks instead.

Nice reef. Saw a good variety of fish, and not many people go there. They all go to Key Largo Dry Rocks, which is very crowded. you can moor all day and have lots to see.

We took a snorkelling trip from John Pennekamp Park which went to dry rocks, neither of us are experienced snorkellers but like to have a go on holiday.
