Key West Scuba Diving
 

The main feature of the French Reef is its overhangs, swim-throughs, and caves. These caves are not the type you find on land. They are just 3 - 4 foot openings you can look into to find there secrets. On the south side you will find two. Hourglass Cave gets its name from the limestone column on the inside that divides the cave in half. Hiding inside you will find large grouper. Christmas Tree Cave gets its name from the large conicial star coral growing on its top. This cave you can swim through. You can see both openings from each other. Care should be taken not to kick up sand with your fins while passing through. Across from the large opening at Christmas tree Cave you will see a coral and limestone island. On the offshore side you find a large cave filled with fish. Up the reef you will discover two more caves White Sand Bottom Cave the home of many large fish. Plus Dog Snapper Ledge. North of this area you will find Elkhorn Corals and fire coral ledges. On the onshore side you will see brain and star coral.
