DIVING FRENCH REEF “Sand Bottom Cave” Key Largo, Florida

Dive Team: Dave Miller, Holly Miller

Date:  April 5, 2010

Dave’s 45th dive and Holly’s second ocean dive after diving the Benwood shipwreck earlier in the morning. We dove 50 minutes at a depth of 30 to 38 feet. Holly led the way swimming inside a swim-through cave called Sand Bottom Cave. In the cave we viewed six large silver snapper. Later we saw our first giant eagle ray half submerged in the sand. Very abundant reef as we saw beautiful coral and thousands of fish. Returning toward the dive boat we swam once again through Sand Bottom Cave this time seeing a large angelfish and a school of butterfly fish. We had lunch at my favorite restaurant, The Galley. I had mahi-mahi and Holly had calamari and shrimp quesadillas.
