The wrecks were great for shooting pictures.  The shallow reefs were full
of different kinds of fish for shooting pics.  The water was pretty clear
with visibility > 60ft.

I had never been to Key Largo before so this was a new adventure for us. 
The dive operation was well manned and the staff was very helpfull.  The
boat captains were easy going but very knowledgable of the areas and the
conditions.  They were very familiar with the potential issues at each of
the sites and they gave very detailed briefings.  The boats were top notch
and If I go back to Key Largo I will certainly dive with them again.
    The mariners Club was on the high end for accomodations.  We stayed in
a 2 bedroom villa and it was great.  The building that we were in was
fairly new.  The Club had a great pool for relaxing and a health club for
those that wanted it.  It was a great accomodation but expensive.
