About San Pedro Underwater Archaeological Preserve State Park
A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER
Situated in only 18 feet of water, this underwater site provides visitors with a glimpse of the remains of the Spanish ship San Pedro that left Havana Cuba, bound for Spain, and sank during the hurricane of 1733. The shipwreck has ballast stones, replica cannons and an old anchor to view as well as lots of marine life that call the wreck home. There are mooring buoys for you to tie up to, and it is only 1.25 miles south of Indian Key dock.
While planning your visit, please bring plenty of fluids and sunscreen. A Diver-Down flag is required by law!
