Key Largo, Fl. Pickles Reef is a large, shallow reef area 15 to 25fsw 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. GPS Location: N 24° 59.170 W 080° 24.940
