Wrecks & Reefs of Palm Beach

We headed out this morning to enjoy the best of both worlds when it comes to diving in West Palm Beach. Our first dive was a drift on the Corridor wrecks which include the Anna Cecilia, Mizpah, Amaryllis, and more. The current was moving north but at a nice comfortable pace which allowed the divers the opportunity to hover around the wreck. The Anna Cecilia…

The Ana Cecilia Wreck — One Month Later

On July 13th, 2016, Palm Beach added a new artificial reef to our collection — the Ana Cecilia wreck.

The cast of characters, in their resplendent colors and shapes, play the parts very well. And no where does the colorful landscape imagined by Lewis Carroll feel more real than taking one glimpse at the reefs and wrecks of West…

Okay, so diving in the Bahamas is pretty cool, but really… On a day of scuba diving like we had today there isn’t much I miss about the Bahamas.

Broken Scuba Diving Scale

On the scuba diving scale of great diving, today would definitely push the pin to its breaking point. If the crystal-clear, blue water we had on both our dives wasn’t enough of a reward, we spent one of our dives interacting with a very special and popular fish that frequents one of the local reefs.
