I certified here a few years back and is where we go each chance we can to practice our skills. We always see something different. We love to camp there as the facility is great. Summer around the holidays is a bad time due to the crowds. In the early spring watch for the Florida water moccasin. On my first dive years ago as a 'certified diver' I placed my hand on the tails of two of these vipers. I found out quickly that you can talk underwater. Really an enjoyable dive site!
