There is a Florida Key called Sugarloaf and it is kind of close to Key west but it is a totally different experience. its alot smaller and not so much touristy stuff. I really enjoyed being able to do a deepwater dive off of a local boat with a great crew! This trip we dove down about 80 feet and it was amazing. You always see something different each time you go diving and this time was no exception. We had the pleasure of seeing quite a few 4 foot sharks just casually swimming around and they didn;t bother us at all.

This is one of the keys and they have a nice little beach.
