North Dry Rocks is better known as Minnow Cave as that is the main reason divers will dive at this dive site. It is an area of limestone ledges reaching the surface and creating great valleys in between with many fish and coral. Minnow Cave is one of the top coral caves in Florida marked by several yellow Sanctuary Preservation Area (SPA) buoys and three N-lettered mooring buoys, located in the center of the reef. Not all is protected; several parts can be fished at if you have the right permits.

Summer is a favourite time for thousands of silver glass minnows to inhabit the sheltered places and openings of the cave, which is obviously named after them. Other common inhabitants are barracuda, groupers and spiny lobsters. It has as many marine fish as neighbouring Christ of the Deep, but you don't have to share it with as many dive tours, making it a much quieter dive.
