South Biscayne

Triumph Reef, marked by a small tower, offers huge coral heads, sloping drop off and ledges full of fish and lobsters. The Laguna wreck, a small freighter lying in 20 feet of water on nearby Long Reef, went aground around the turn of the century. Continue south to a cluster of three wrecks. The Oli King was scrapped for metal during WWII, but enough of the remain are still here to make a safe place for larger fish to hide. The Spanish freighter Alecia went aground here in 1905 and the Schooner wreck can be found in only 10 feet deep. Look for the ballast stones in a large mound 6 feet high.

Ajax Reef ranges from 10 to 35 feet deep and features more of the signature ledges and overhangs that are the signature of this diving area. Pacific Reef also emerges from 60 feet to less than 15, highlighted by a tower and light. The current runs through here swiftly at times and makes a great drift dive.

Two deep wrecks are just offshore the reef here, the Doc DeMilly and the Almirante, in about 130 feet of water. Jewfish and grouper, barracudas and the occasional eagle ray can be found here, as well as a plethora of spiny oysters and gorgonians.
