Reef Dives: North Dry Rocks

North Dry Rocks is better known as Minnow Cave as that is the main reason divers will dive at this dive site. It is an area of limestone ledges reaching the surface and creating great valleys in between with many fish and coral.

Minnow Cave is one of the top coral caves in Florida marked by several yellow Sanctuary Preservation Area (SPA) buoys and three N-lettered mooring buoys, located in the center of the reef.

It lies to the east of Key Largo, within the Key Largo Existing Management Area, which is immediately to the east of John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. The reef lies within a Sanctuary Preservation Area (SPA).

It is close to Grecian Rocks and The Elbow. A copy of the famous Christ of the Abyss statue is located at this reef.
