Coral Reef Diving in Key Largo with Sail Fish Scuba
Sand Bottom Caves Reef Dive Site Description
French Reef has many mooring ball sites, and the favorite of everyone is Sand Bottom Caves. This site gets its name from the numerous areas where the living coral reef is washed out under the bottom allowing divers to explore the cave like areas. With a max depth of 45 feet and shallowest parts at top of the reef being only 15 feet deep, this makes a great spot for scuba diver and snorkeling guests alike.
