Amoray Diving Lodge is located right on the Florida Bay in the sunny Florida Keys at mile marker 104 in Key Largo. The resort offers luxurious one and two-bedroom villas. Each fully-furnished condominium is equipped with a fridge, air conditioning, ceiling fans, wifi, and cable television.
Amoray surrounds it’s guests in the seclusion of a Caribbean plantation, yet offers all of Key Largo’s colorful artisan centers, fine waterfront restaurants, and tiki bars. Additionally, it offers a great pool and a sandy beach!
Located just a few short steps from your room is the Amoray Diver, which will be our primary dive platform for this weeks adventure. Additionally, we are surrounded by several of the Florida Keys best dive operations, and we have several that work hard to make our trips special and our guests welcome, should that option arise. Indian Valley Scuba’s nearly two decades of Florida Keys experience, coupled with the superb service and knowledge of the dive operators staff, as well as their central location to the best diving in Key Largo make our choice of operators guaranteed to provide the very best in safety and service for our Indian Valley Scuba divers.
Key Largo Marine Sanctuary and John Pennekamp Coral Reef Park are areas dedicated to protection and preservation which makes the diving an experience not to forget. No fishing or hunting is allowed within the parks which makes the fish more apt to explore right alongside of you. These gems of the sea include enchanting schools of friendly fish, delicate soft sponges, and massive colonies of vibrantly colored coral. Water depths over the coral reef vary from 10 to 45 feet. Water temperature will vary by season with lows of 75 degrees to a high of 87 degrees with visibility ranging as high as 75 to 100 feet or more.
In addition to the reef diving, our itinerary will include the spectacular wrecks of the Duane, Spiegel Grove, Benwood, and other wrecks which, as artificial reefs, have added to the thriving undersea life. Depths of these wrecks can range from 50 to 120 feet which can accommodate divers of all certification levels.
For Open Water students, we enjoy our first two Friday morning dives at Jules Undersea Lodge, site of America’s only underwater hotel. Once we’ve got our skills ‘down’ and our comfort levels are ‘up’, we head out to the reef with one of our preferred Florida Keys dive operators and begin to explore the beautiful marine environment that was the very reason we decided to learn to dive in the first place. Already certified divers will begin their adventure with two reef dives in the morning, of if they’d like to refresh their skills, they are welcome to join us at the lagoon.
In addition to the reefs and wrecks, we also enjoy include a few other special features on our Florida trips. Not to be left out are the eagerly anticipated night dives to either the Benwood or City of Washington wrecks which are both actual shipwrecks with a colorful history behind each one. The nightlife, illuminated by your powerful flashlight is not to be missed. It’s a whole different world down there after dark! Each trip varies slightly and our divers may be treated to such opportunities such as Drift dives or a Creature Feature dive.
