The best of the Key Largo's diving and snorkeling locations are at the John Pennekamp's Marine Sanctuary lush coral reefs formations. In addiction you'll find some great ship wrecks sunken in this waters open for exploration.  The most visited and popular of these dive sites in this region it's probably by no doubts the statue of the "Christ of the Deep" in the area of the Dry Rocks Reef.

The recognition of Key Largo as the Diving Capital of the World it's due to the fact that the well preserved coral reefs are only a few miles away from shore and extend for many more miles across a vast area of the Florida Keys, and also to the proximity of Key Largo to the Florida peninsula.
