East Coast Getaway
October 9, 2021 - October 10, 2021
This weekend, we’re headed over to the east coast of Florida to do some drift diving and shore diving! We’ll start off Saturday morning in Jupiter, meet time is 9 a.m. at Kyalami charters for a 2-tank dive, nitrox tanks included. The second day, we’ll meet at Phil Foster Park, located in Rivera Beach, Florida.
Saturday morning, we’ll meet at 9 a.m. in Jupiter in front of Square Grouper Tiki Bar at the Castaway Marina. Departure time is scheduled for 10 a.m. See loggerhead turtles, goliath groupers, beautiful coral heads, sea fans, rays, eels, sharks and more!
Sunday morning, we’ll head up to Riviera Beach, Florida (roughly 30 minutes) to dive one of the most beautiful and easily-divable sites in the U.S., Blue Heron Bridge.
World-renowned Blue Heron Bridge right off of Phil Foster Park in West Palm Beach, Florida, was chosen one of the best dive sites in the world by PADI magazine in 2013. Known for its wildlife and easy diving conditions, this shore dive is famous for photographers.
Marine Life: On this shore dive, you will see a variety of small to medium-sized fish and marine life including: octopus, frog fish, eels, stargazers, rays, sea horses and many more.
Depth: The depth is relatively shallow with a max of 20 feet. Divers can expect a 45-minute to 2-hour dive time!
Dive Plan: Due to the proximity to the inlet, current can affect conditions, we will plan our dive around High Slack Tide or Low Slack Tide to ensure a safe, easy and comfortable dive plan. High tide begins at 12:04 p.m. so, we’ll meet at the park around 9:30 or 10 a.m. to ensure parking and a dive time of around 11 a.m.
Gear: Trip includes Divemaster, tank or air refill and dive flag/float. Adventure Outfitters offers gear rental packages for any trip! Schedule your gear needs with us to ensure fit and comfort.
About Phil Foster Park: Phil Foster Park is a protected 800-foot artificial reef located off of Singer Island and west of Ocean Mall. The dive site is separated into two different sections, a large bridge on the southwestern side of Phil Foster Park and a smaller bridge on the southeastern side.
