Loee Key National Marine Sanctuary

Looe Key Reef, a vibrant tongue and groove reef system near Big Pine Key, is visited by at least a dozen dive shops from Bahia Honda to Sugarloaf Key on a regular basis.

Back in 1744, the HMS Looe went aground here in a storm, and remnants can still be found to the east of the reef, about 200 yards from the marker. You'll find a large number of buoys here, as well as a good crowd of commercial dive boats, small boaters and rentals if the weather is right.

The reef profile begins in only 6 feet of water and extends to about 40 feet at the bottom of the reef on the ocean side. This makes it a favorite destination of snorkelers, student divers and family boaters.

The best advantages of visiting Looe Key are easy access, clear waters, good fish populations and a variety of corals, sea fans, anemones, crabs, lobsters, shrimp and sponges. Bring an underwater camera, or rent one for the day!
