Turtle Reef, also know as Turtle Rocks, is a good-sized patch reef on the very northern edge of the Key Largo National Marine Sanctuary. Most reef species are represented here, including Eagle Rays, plenty of Nurse Sharks, and an occasional moray.
This site is relatively shallow, with its visibility usually good as its location protects it from the strong currents lying beyond. The patches of coral are walled with mounding Star Coral formations and surrounded by white fine sand. It is located off-shore from the Ocean Reef area of Key Largo. It is a 25 foot deep dive to the sand, with the tops of the reef resting in 10 feet of water.
There are four mooring buoys marking the length of the reef. This is a wonderful spot to visit as it gets few divers due to it's northern location. Come enjoy the rocky caves and archways.
