- 7 Nights Lodging in a two bedroom condominium with full kitchen, pull out sofa, swimming pool, and hot tub at Ocean Pointe Suites
- 6 Days of Two tank Dives
- Tanks and Weights
- Discount possible for quadruple occupancy of two bedroom condominium
Possible Dive Sites include:
- Captain Tom's Ledge: A coral ledge that contains the whole food chain, from large grouper to over 5000 schooling fish. A beautiful dive in 35-60 feet of water.
- Conch Wall: The home of a number of sites. Conch Wall (50-110 ft.) noted for huge barrel sponges and large marine life.
- Crocker Ridges: Spur and groove coral formations with large coral heads. Known for angelfish and butterflies.
- Crocker Wall: (45-90 ft.) Large sponges and gorgonians with excellent marine life. Even the occasional eagle ray.
- Davey Crocker: (15-30 Ft.) A beautiful patch reef ideal for underwater photographers. Nurse sharks, groupers, jacks, and many tropical fish inhabit this area.
- Davis Reef: One of the nicest reefs in the area. Noted for its abundance of large green moray eels, and a multitude of tropical fish. Great spot for night dives. (15-30 Ft.)
- Hens and Chickens: (5-25 ft.) Beautiful peaks and mounds of star and plate coral. Better visibility in the summer at this near shore reef.
- Little Conch Reef: (15-30 Ft.) Smaller shoaling reef with a variety of marine life, including nurse sharks and moray eels. Adjacent is the site of the Spanish Galleon, El Infante, sunk in the 1733 hurricane. (15-30 Ft.)
- Molasses Reef: The best known and most popular sites in Coral Reef State Park (formerly Pennekamp Park). Noted for lots of fish, many star coral heads, regal stands of Elkhorn coral, The "winch hole," and a Galleon anchor. (15-30 F.)
- Spiegel Grove: The first thing sport divers notice about the Spiegel Grove wreck is its immensity. Because the Spiegel Grove measures 510 feet from stern to bow, on even the clearest days it will be impossible to view the entire hull from end-to-end. "Imagine a ship lying along the bottom that's almost two football fields long. That's the Spiegel Grove," said Miami scuba enthusiast Jerry Apple, a veteran wreck diver who explored the ship soon after its June 2002 sinking. The retired Navy transport ship was intentionally sunk six miles off Key Largo to form the backbone of a coral-reef ecosystem. It is the largest ship ever intentionally sunk for that reason. The algae, sponges and corals that are slowly enveloping the Spiegel Grove are wondrously natural. The ship is home to legions of fish from tiny tropicals to large barracuda and jacks.
- USCG Duane & USCG Bibb: Two 327 ft. Coast Guard Cutters donated as an artificial reef in 1987 and lay within 200 yards of each other. The Duane wreck lies upright in 118 feet of water while her sister-ship the Bibb lies on her side in 120 feet of water. They are both home to hundreds of fish.
- The Eagle: The 287 foot freighter was donated by the Eagle Tire Company as an artificial reef in 1985 and has become the home to many different underwater inhabitants; tarpon, jacks, an occasional dolphin and jewfish, and thousands of bait fish. Lying on her starboard side the wreck begins at 76 feet and drops to 112 feet in the sand.
Trip Price: $1255
