A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER

Mike Guarino

About a mile due south of the Indian Key dock is a sunken shipwreck called the San Pedro. The vessel went aground during a hurricane in 1733 enroute from Havana Cuba to Spain. Today, we have 5 mooring buoys for your use, marking the remains which include ballast stones, replica cannons and an old anchor. During good conditions, it’s an easy boat trip.

While planning your visit, please bring plenty of fluids and sunscreen. A Diver-Down flag is required by law!
