Discover the Beauty of Grecian Rocks

Welcome to the stunning Grecian Rocks, a shallow reef located just 3/4 of a mile south-southwest of the Christ of the Deep, in the heart of Key Largo’s diving scene. This dive site is a true haven for snorkelers, with its mooring buoys marked with a distinctive “G” outline. At a depth of 4 to 6 feet in many areas, it’s a perfect spot for beginners and experts alike to experience the breathtaking underwater world of the Florida Keys with Silent World.

The vibrant colors of the Grecian Rocks Reef in Key Largo are something to behold. The entire area spans over half a mile, ranging in depth from 4 to 25 feet. The shallow depth of this reef is what makes it so popular, with snorkelers flocking to the area to explore its stunning strands of elkhorn coral and bountiful tropical fish. One of the highlights of this dive site is the beautiful cluster of star coral on the shoreward side of the reef, which provides a spectacular underwater vista that is simply unforgettable. If you’re looking for a relaxing and tranquil snorkeling experience, Grecian Rocks should be at the top of your list.

The white sand plateau that joins the reef is another notable feature of Grecian Rocks. Here, visitors can witness the queen conch and many of the colorful fish that make their homes in the area. The reef’s shallow nature means that during low tide, part of the area is awash, providing a truly unique snorkeling experience.


It’s important to note that the Grecian Rocks Reef is also home to a Sanctuary Preservation Area (SPA), which covers an impressive .3 square nautical miles. This area is designated for the protection and preservation of the delicate marine life in the area. It’s important to take care when visiting and to avoid coming into contact with the coral, as even the slightest contact can cause harm.

At Silent World, we take marine preservation seriously and encourage all visitors to do the same. Our knowledgeable instructors offer PADI courses, including conservation courses, to teach you how to dive and snorkel responsibly. As visitors to the underwater world, it’s our responsibility to take care of the delicate ecosystem that exists within.
