I was diving there this afternoon with Rainbow Reef Dive Center. The statue is cool but what we saw on the reef was way better! A large assortment of different tropical fish including stingrays, trumpetfish, angelfish, lobsters and large crabs. This is definitely a spot...More

Unfortunately the enormous amount of diving tourists have taken their toll on this once beautiful reef we started their 1986 and now it is almost unrecognizable, I am sure that hurricane Irma did not help

Very healthy reef, and an amazing view of the statue. We also snorkeled off the beach on the mock Spanish Ship Wreck.

The Christ statue is a must-see dive site but it's one of those must-see places that you feel like you have to see but don't go back. It's kind of boring after a few minutes, there isn't much wildlife in the area, and you can't...More

This was a experience to remember; water was very clear and it was a really cool thing to see. State park boat The Dolphin's captain and dive master were very friendly and professional. I recommend the 4 1/2 extended snorkel trip.

Crazy busy - everyone wants to see the statue. It was interesting, but so is the coral and sea life nearby - just beautiful.

We booked a 3:00 trip with Capt Darrell from John Pennekamp. The best snorkeling my husband and I have ever experienced. So many fish and, of course, the Christ of the Abyss!

We scubaed with Amoray. There were snorkelers onboard sometimes, but my impression is that the boat was dedicated more to scuba in terms of the depths and sites we visited. If you just want to visit the Christ of the Deep... More
