Davis Reef is 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.)
These are great sites for anyone, but also great for novices. Great dive, a lot of current toward the end. There is plenty to see.
A favorite Keys dives, always fishy, lot’s of critters and easy navigation, just keep the ledge in sight and remember which mooring your boat is tied too.

Davis Reef is a coral reef located within the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. It lies to the southeast of Plantation Key. This reef lies within a Sanctuary Preservation Area (SPA).
The southern end of the reef is sometimes called “Davis Ledge.”
The Fish and Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI, the research arm of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission), the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, the Coral Restoration Foundation (CRF), the Wildlife Foundation of Florida (WFF), and the family of the late Charlie Stroh have recently begun a program of “outplanting” corals around Davis reef.
