    Most clear water on the FL key . Ocean High Definition Movie

    Guys you have to check this . it was like running over a glass installed 120 FT high on the surface ...

    Coming out from mile 70 on the Keys you go straight on the ocean , I will guess like 3 or 4 miles there is a old lighthouse ( not alligator reef ) this one is southern , few yards before you hit the lighthouse you will find the most clear and turquoise water on the keys .

    Deep was around 120 FT and you still can see all the bottom , even running at 45 mph , I'll describe it as a Ocean High Definition movie

    I use to spearfishing , I have a jetski and a boat I go to the keys 10 times a year but never feel this before . It was a mix of vertigo with amazement .

    If anyone been there before I would like to know if you feel the same

    Know it very well too well 1 time years ago on a polaris doing some high speed wave jumping ( more distance than height ) and its so nice I keep going "1 more wave"-to myself -because I am --I rally on for a little bit then take a break only to hit the diplay to find out I went 22 miles out ,turn around no land in site duh---just followed my snail trail back till it faded then the tall hump bridge came into view I knew I was ok....
    But as much as I love my area ,,the sugarloaf key water TAKES THE CAKE

    Are you talking about riding when the water is flat calm and it looks like you're going up but feels like your going down or vice versa? It's a pretty cool but confusing feeling, had it happen a bunch of times when it's flat and you can see the bottom.
    If you were south of Alligator it was probably Tennessee Reef light. It's off Long Key.

    This is some clear water. In about 20+ feet of water. Notice the shadow from the ski on the bottom.
