I lived in and dove the Keys in the late 70's and 80's. Best Corals, best
fish, I have ever seen. Then came the fall, white coral,algae, green water,
It was terrible. Something has happened. The corals in Key Largo are coming
back, the algae on the reef is greatly diminished. Visibility was good.
Clouds of tropicals, snappers groupers, grunts. Very heartening. Now to the
best part. World class wreck diving. We dove the Spiegel Grove, the current
was ripping. The boys had all the lines just right. Spectacular Gorilla
Diving. Of course once you gained the deck of the ship, and sheltered on
the lee side of the current, calm as a swimming pool. Beautiful soft
corals, nice variety of fish. Play the current right, and it was a
beautiful dive. The next day we dove the Duane, minimal current ,80 viz at
the bottom (120'). Gorgeous soft corals, scads of fish, Jacks, schooling
cudas, Pompanos,and a rascally Goliath Grouper. The water was a beautiful
gulf stream blue. It was such a great dive that my computer went into
decompression mode, which shows how enraptured I was with the surroundings.
One of the best dives of my life. I can't wait to go back. The crew at
Scuba Do are very congenial,very capable,very flexible, and seemed totally
committed to our satisfaction.
