BLUE HERON BRIDGE
Day in and day out, this Riviera Beach location may well be the best shore dive in Florida. It has two distinct sites, east and west, tons of small critters for the macro person, enough big fish to keep you looking around, and best of all, it’s free, dawn until 10 p.m. This site should be dived near slack high tide. Max depths 23 east site, 19 west site, both sites can be done in one trip.
Dive on high slack tide.
Like all areas in the lagoon system, to get clean water and low current, it should be dived near high slack tide. This means to schedule it, you have to avail yourself to NOAA tide tables. Be at the water’s edge ready to enter 60 – 45 minutes before high tide.
