Horseshoe Reef

Any given day at Horseshoe Reef you can enjoy a gorgeous dive with a huge variety of critters. During certain points in the summer the swim through sections and caves will fill with tiny Silver sided minnows. If you swim slowly they will surround you as you enter the area. When you dive here keep an eye out for them.


You will find Horseshoe reef located just a bit north of the famous Key Largo Dry Rocks (home of Christ of the Abyss). When you’re here

Florida Keys Dive Site Horseshoe Reef Description

As you may have guessed, this reef gets its name from its curved horseshoe-like formation. It ranges in depth from 15 to 25 feet, with the sharpest profile on the shoreward side. With several sandy ledges decorated with soft coral and sponges, it’s a fun-filled dive. There are coral heads scattered around near the ledges, and multiple swim through areas to pass through the reef.


When you’re swimming along keep a lookout for the Elkhorn coral.
It is on the nearly critically endangered coral list.

Elkhorn coral is considered to be one of the most important reef-building corals in the Caribbean, although current populations have been decimated by white band disease and have yet to fully recover. You don’t want to miss the chance to dive this reef!
