“A Great Thing To Do When in Key Largo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

We took the glass bottom boat from John Pennecamp State Park vs other private offers and we are glad that we did. Great trip over a beautiful reef in a very well maintained and staffed boat. Do not miss this, be sure to use the discount coupons, it pays the admission to the park.

“Gooddiving site”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Molasses reef was interesting diving site with reasonably lot to see. We went to the winch site, which was great with parts of the winch and anchor chain still visible.

Rays, eels and turtles were present with plenty of fishes present.

“Great Shallow Reef!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

What a great dive on a shallow reef! Tons of fish, lobsters, rays, etc. Easy dive, the max depth was ~35 ft. No current, good visibility, but this was right after hurrican Sandy, so there was some haze in the water. I would highly recommend this site, esp. the aquarium part of the reef. It literally feels like you are swimming in an acquarium!
