Long Reef, so named for the large reef area running south for two miles, has many great diving opportunities. The reef system runs almost parallel to Elliot Key, lying just east of it and south of Triumph Reef. You can find almost all kinds of diving here, from shallow 20 foot dives, to deeper 40 - 60 foot dives.
The Alicia went aground on Long Reef off Elliott's Key on April 21, 1905. At the time she was en route from Liverpool to Havana. Salvagers raised her off the reef, but a strong gale succeeded in blowing her back on, this time smashing a huge hole into her hull. The Alicia had carried a cargo of furniture and trade goods. Although early salvagers did recover a vast amount of her cargo, divers will still find a variety of bottles on the site. The Alicia lies in 20 feet of water.
