WRECKS, REEFS, AND RELAXATION
Your Key West scuba diving trip wouldn't be complete without a wreck and reef dive. The Florida Keys are home to countless shipwrecks that simply beg to be explored and photographed. One such wreck, the Joes Tug, was sunk to create an artificial reef. This 75-foot tugboat looks surreal as it offers shelter to tropical fish, coral and anemone. Another artificial reef component, the Cayman Salvager, anchors its 180-foot steel body in 75-feet of water, an immense artifact of bygone days. The Aquanaut is another amazing Key West scuba diving must-see. This 55-foot wooden tugboat sank into 75-feet of water in 1967. At this location, you are bound to discover shrimp, yellowtail snapper, crab, and lobster.
LUSCIOUS LOBSTER LOUNGE THE LAGOONS
Unlike the Maine lobster, with its huge claws, the Spiny Lobster is savored for its delicious tail. Tourists and locals join in the Key West scuba lobster catch each year, armed with tickle stick, gloves, underwater measuring tool, net, catch bag, and dive flag. You can also catch your quota of lobster while snorkeling. Just be sure to get your permit. Your Key West scuba dive will be as delicious as it is beautiful as you tease your lobster out from under rocks and try to get your catch bag around your prey as it scuttles across the ocean floor.
