The coral reef was damaged by hurricanes, but is begining to recover.  The
coral formations are undercut which gives divers a lot of places to
investigate.  Abundance of tropical fish, lobsters, eels.  Not a lot of
soft coral and vegitation.  Dive Key West was fantastic!  All dive sites
were described in detail (most of the times with drawings).  Boat was
great, had plenty of room, not overcrowded, easy entry and exit.  Crew
would change tanks and gear between dives, while the divers relax and
rehydrate and eat fruit.  Pressure gauges were checked before and after
dive, time in and out of water was also recorded in the captains dive log. 
Boat was equipped with all necessary safety gear, including oxygen and a
diver recall system for emergencies. At shop was a wash basin for all gear,
you can also hang your dive gear at the shop overnight, so you do not have
to take it back to your hotel/condo.
