San Pedro Underwater Archaeological Preserve State Park

Museum under the sea

Accessible only by boat and only to scuba divers and snorkelers, San Pedro Underwater State Park offers exploration of a Spanish ship that sank in 1733 near Indian Key.

Wreckers undoubtedly claimed most of her bounty, and in the 1960s, she was stripped of most historic remains. The site, however, is marked by ballast stones, interpretive information, and replicas of the cannons that were mounted on the ship.

Schools of colorful reef swirl past, to the delight of divers. The site is under 18 feet of water and lies 1.25 nautical miles south of Indian Key in Hawk Channel. Use the mooring buoys to tie up to prevent anchor damage to the site.
