This was my third trip to Key Largo, arguably my favorite place to dive to
date and I've written about the area in more detail in earlier Chapbooks. 
As usual:  great shallow spur & groove reef diving with tons of
schooling fish, good coral, an occasional nurse shark and turtle, and tons
of bottom time given the shallow depths.  

This time I stayed at a new place:  Amy Slate's Amoray Dive Resort, which
proved to be the best yet.  Unlike the mediocre chain motels of the area,
the Amoray resort is a very pleasant, almost small campus-like place on the
side of the Key facing Florida (and the sunset).  It is very homey ,
non-commercial, and lushly planted.  The rooms are small apartment duplexes
with their own kitchen.  It has a pool, a small beach on the waterfront,
kayaks, and its own dive operation.

The dive operation was efficient and run by very nice folks.  They were
very helpful and gave excellent dive briefings.  Their only down side was
that they imposed one hour dive limits in order to maintain the ability to
send boats out twice a day (pretty common of the dive operations there -
except Ocean Divers).  Because it is on the opposite side of the island as
the dive sites, transit time is 20 min or so longer than most of the other
operators.  However, the trip is very pleasant and goes through some
beautiful mangrove forests.  In sum, I highly recommend Amoray dive resort
as the place to stay in Key Largo - even if you use the other dive
