Pickles Reef

Fast Facts:

Average Rating: 3.75

Average Depth: 15 ft.

Max Depth: 25 ft.


Pickles is a large, shallow reef area where divers and snorkelers

can view well-formed corals. The name comes from

cement-filled pickle barrels sunk here during the Civil War.

These barrels are now covered with the largest pillar corals in the Keys. Numerous ledges and crevasses attract juvenile and tropical fish of many species. Look for purple sea fans, conchs, and the occasional lobster too.

Pickles is close to Molasses Reef, and the wrecks Duane and Bibb.
