From sunken artifacts and colorful fish to coastal breezes and crystal clear waters, Florida’s sunny shores offer some of the best SCUBA diving in the country. The Blue Heron Bridge, one of the premiere shore diving destinations, features a combination of excellent conditions, easy accessibility and a vast variety of marine life for divers, snorkelers and underwater photographers.
The diverse ecosystem of this top-rated dive site, located in Phil Foster Park on the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW), is just inside Palm Beach County’s largest estuary, the Lake Worth Inlet. Since the area is protected by the ICW, SCUBA diving is possible in weather conditions that would normally limit time in the water via boat or shore diving off Florida’s East Coast.
