Named for a wreck found here that was carrying
several pickle barrels,
Pickles Reef is a site not
visited very often by the dive shops.  That makes the
area more pristine and enormous schools of fish and
nurse sharks are common at this site.  Pillar Coral
Forest, one of the largest pillar coral formations in the
Keys, can be found at the North end of the reef.

Pickles Reef is about 2 1/2 miles Southwest of
Molasses Reef.  This dive site is no deeper than 25
feet and is excellent for beginner or advanced.  There
are 3 mooring buoys and a red temporary marker
marking the reef.
