Its southern brother Carysfort Reef South is a long, shallow and narrow reef system of alleyways and canyons filled with reef fish and covered in beds of Elkhorn coral. Accessible from the Ocean Reef Community in Key Largo this is one of the reefs extremely suitable for snorkelers as coral heads almost reach the surface. Blue parrotfish, damselfish and surgeon fish are very common inhabitants.

The HMS Winchester is a 933 ton warship from the United Kingdom located at approximately 1.5 miles southwest of Carysfort Lighthouse, no mooring buoys. This 145 foot ship was discovered in 1938 but has nothing more left than some cannon balls to prove its wreckage in 1695.
