This half-mile-long, crescent-shaped patch reef is an interesting dive site since it is highly developed and similar to those of most outer bank reefs in the Key Largo area.

I agree with all the other reviews on the snorkeling ~ Incredible! We got to the Grecian Rocks via the boat tour out of John Pennykamp State Park and definitely recommend this adventure.

The waves were really high the week that we visited and we could only make it out to the Grecian Rocks, but it is still beautiful. The waves were about 2 feet high, so it was hard to swim out to the coral reef, but it was totally worth it. The coral is gorgeous and lots of wildlife to look... More

We snorkeled here. It was gorgeous. We saw a lot of fish, some barracudas, and a shark. We took lots of photos and some videos. It was easy to swim around. There wasn't a current pushing us around which made it easy to just float around and watch the fish.

This is the best shallow water snorkel spot in the upper keys. Huge sea fans cover roughly an acre and colorful wildlife is abundant. We always see innumerable angelfish, parrots, butterfly fish, snapper, and small groupers. We' also spotted a shy morray, spotted ray, and large manta here. Large barracuda do make at least one appearance per trip so take... More

Very shallow, great to take first time or limited time snorklers or divers to. Some of the best soft corals, fish, and sea life in the Florida Keys. You will not go wrong visiting this site.

While I have over 600 dives, I still love to occasionally go to this dive site. It is pretty shallow, but the array of colors in the coral/sponges is magnificent!

Very populated with many varieties of fish. Including large barracuda and sting rays. IVe also seen turtles and nurse sharks in the area. Worth the trip but not as dramatic as Bahamas so for a first timer its nice trip

Very small rocky beach offering no sun loungers or umbrellas. Limited eats/drinks in the gift shop. Good snorkeling tour though but you really need to bring all your own stuff to make it a good visit here.

It is a great place to see all types of fish and sea life. Was able to visit it even though the waters were rough that day. Would go there again.
