Tie your boat off on one of the 11 mooring buoys on the South side of the 142 foot Sombrero Key Lighthouse. Get your waterproof camera ready to snap pictures of colorful tropical fish, sea turtles, nurse sharks, and various coral formations in crystal clear waters. The depth ranges from 5-35 feet and is perfect for divers of all levels and snorkelers too. The reef is a Sanctuary Preservation Area and is strictly regulated.
