Palm Beach diving presents you with the most marine life you can find on any reef system, anywhere in the world. In Palm Beach, diving is performed from boats and drift diving is chosen over anchor diving because of the currents. The waters of the Gulf Stream come closer to land at Palm Beach then anywhere else in the United States, making the most diverse marine life ecosystem.
On your dive you can expect to see large schools of fish, turtles, eels, and stingrays. It is not uncommon to have 50 to 70 feet of visibility, and the water is warm varying from 72°F in winter to 85°F in the summer months. You may see Florida Spiny Lobsters, which are delicious eating when they are in season. You may have the opportunity to swim next to a Great Southern Ray or to touch a nurse shark as it rests on the bottom.
The best part of diving the Palm Beaches is the beautiful colors of the soft corals and sponges as you watch the gorgonians and sea fans flutter in the gentle currents. If you look closely at the coral and the sponges you can pick out all the tiny marine life such as the arrow crabs, banded coral shrimp, or you may come upon a cleaning station. The reefs are shallow, typically 60 feet or less, so you will have 30 to 40 minutes at each dive site and still remain well within your safety guidelines.
