This was the 4th 0f 4 dive destinations with the Carnival Legend cruise
ship.We were picked up by bus from the dock, and went for a 20 minute
scenic ride by bus to Anthony's Key Resort. What we saw of the  resort was
very nice, and you definitely needed insect repellent. We were a group of
about 18, and there was plenty of room on the dive boat. This dive
operation was the most laid back of any of the operators. They told us they
had great deals going on at the resort due to the slow economic times (2
for 1 prices); we have aquaintances who have stayed here and they liked it
very much. The dive masters set up our gear for us, and we made our long 3
minute journey to the dive site. Upon entering the water, we saw a huge
snapper in the water column, and thought- this looks good. The divemaster
told us they feed them so they stay. The first dive site was Green Outhouse
Wall- nice wall and interesting topography, but once we went over the top,
the water became murky. The vis. changed noticably in different areas. We
did see a nice hawksbill turtle coming up from the depths, but the rest of
the dive was pretty sparse of fish life.  We returned to the dock for our
SI- where we were free to look around, or go to their gift shop. The crew
served watermelon, brought on new tanks, and switched over our gear for
us.The second dive was Wayne's Place- a few minutes away. Upon entering the
water, we saw 5 huge black groupers, a yellow fin, and several
 large snappers. These just milled around the mooring- and gave us a chance
to get a good look at them- usually groupers are quickly swimming by,
unless in a cleaning station, or under a ledge. Apart from these fed
residents, the life was sparse, and we noted lots of algae on the corals
and floor. The divemaster pointed out  a tiny peacock flounder,and juv.
spotted drum under the ledge; it was hard to point out much to the others,
as many had poor buoyancy control,swam all over with their arms, and
quickly ran out of air. On both dives, the dive master let us stay down
while he got the others back on the boat.The depths were about 70 feet max,
time about 40 minutes. A roll call was taken on each dive. Anthony's Key
Resort looks like a top notch operation for families with diverse
interests.
