Attraction details
Owner description: 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 visited Grecian rocks as part of our snorkel trip with Keys Divers. We saw spotted rays, barracuda, all kinds of colorful fish, and even a 4' shark! As a newbie snorkeler I was pleased to see all this first time out. Water was generally 6-10' deep, and much calmer than over by the "Christ of the Abyss" location.

Good for snorkeling but not much different on a dive. Dive a wreck and not just a small reef such as this as it is good for a fist snorkel trip.

I have been diving this park for over 40 years. I live in Louisiana and usually trailer my boat down but this trio was a last minute choice. Winds behind a cold front kept us from snorkeling the Dry Rocks and Christ of the deep with my novice snorkeling wife. This reef is shallow and at low tide is partially above water. For a beginner the Reef is so close to the surface you can get cut up on the corral if you are not careful. Not much to see, however we did see a 3' black tip shark. Not a normal occurrence but very safe and exciting. The staff and crew people are always great here.

Grecian Rocks north and south was beautiful. There were lots of fish and barracudas and healthy coral. The water was calm that day and our tour operator gave good instructions to keep the reef safe.

We went out with the Quiescence dive shop. They only allow 6 to a boat which was way more comfortable and personable than the big party boats we saw. The Grecian Rocks area provided the best snorkeling of the day. Despite the moderate winds and breakers, the area still remained relatively calm. Great variety of fish and coral with excellent clarity.
