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.

We took a trip out to Grecian Rocks when it was to rough on the open ocean for dives. GREAT area to snorkel. Saw a great variety to include a ray, barracudas, all sorts of tropicals and a scorpian fish. Little crowded for my taste but still enjoyable

Rented a boat and hooked up to a mooring. Spent a few hours snorkeling and enjoying the view. It was New Years Day and all the moorings were filled up quickly, but there is plenty of space between them so you dont feel crowded. Nice verity of fish to see. Suggestion - if you have younger ones bring a rope... More

The fish diversity was much greater than I expected. Good place for beginner and experienced snorkelers.

I've been to Grecian Rocks many times, through a range of conditions. When the weather is calmer, it's a very good reef to snorkel because the coral and fish are close to the surface. Great for kids, too, since they can see a lot without swimming too far. Take a waterproof camera if you have one. Over the years, I've... More

Had heard that this was great place to dive but due to the surge kicking up sand, we didn't get to see much.

We couldn't go to the other sites because seas were a bit stirred up and the winds were cranking, but this spot was still snorkel-able. We saw plenty of fish, conch, and lots of coral reef.

This is hands down the reef my kids always beg to go to. Its not as deep as a lot of the other reefs and it has a great assortment of fish and conchs. On a calm day it is just beautiful. You can rent a boat from Pennekamp and go straight to it.

We had our own boat and were staying on Blackwater Sound so getting through Adams Cut and boating through John Pennekamp was an easy ride to get to Grecian Rocks. The was was beautifully clear, other charter boats were present, waters were shallow enough for our teens to be comfortable and we saw much coral and tropical fish. It was... More

We snorkeled in very rough seas, but the shallow area of this reef was excellent and calm. The rougher side was deeper, but Captain Cody and Dive master Tim kept a close eye on everyone.
