A very popular beach dive in Palm Beach County is at Phil Foster Park called "Blue Heron Bridge". This dive site is very convenient; parking is available right next to the sand.  Depth ranges from 6 feet to 22 feet and the variety of life is quite impressive.  This dive should only be done around high tide, while still allowing for 90 to 150 minute dives.  It is an excellent place to learn underwater photography. (I am a S.D.I. Underwater Photography Instructor.)) You may see octopus, worms, scorpionfish, squid, starfish, horseshoe crabs, sea horses, arrow crabs, puffer fish, barracuda, stingrays, angelfish, flying gunard, robbin fish, urchins, anenome, sea biscuit, and much more.  If you are unfamiliar with the area, I suggest that you hire a personal guide for this dive.   This is also a good site for snorkeling since the addition of 'the snorkel trail' last year.

There are two dive sites at Blue Heron Bridge; "the east side" and "the west side".  Note that when people talk about diving "the west side" we do not mean the west side of the intracoastal waterway; we mean the west side of Phil Foster Park.

If you are travelling into the area you might find this map helpful.

When diving 'the west side' you must be a very good underwater navigator!  It is extremely easy to unintentionally end up in the boat channel.  Boats go through here very fast, you could get chopped up very easily.

When diving 'the east side' it will be easy to stay out of the boat channel, however you will note that you will be diving very close to, or underneath of, many boat docks.

Watch out for fishing line!  I very much recommend carrying two cutting devices when you dive.
