When it comes to shore diving, muck diving or just plain diving, the Blue Heron Bridge is often hailed as the best in the Americas. A great variety of life, easy shore entry and months of tropical warm water from late spring until late fall makes this a great place to dive. As the only dive shop located at the bridge inside Phil Foster Park, Blue Heron Bridge Scuba is uniquely placed to serve the needs of the dive community.

We started our dive from the Phil Foster Park on the eastern side of Blue Heron bridge moving toward the channel (west). The site has something for everyone. We found batfish, seahorses, an assortment of juvenile fish, crabs, eels, schools of fish (spade fish) and urchins. It is a must for any diver staying in the Palm Beach area

Busy but fun and convenient spot for a snorkel or dive. Definitely worth a visit! The snorkel trail is easy to follow.

Do it. Such an amazing dive. Look for the little things and you will NOT be disappointed. Make sure you swing by Force-E (West end of the bridge) before you dive. Talk to Mark. He's drawn a map that is spot-on that will make your dive much more enjoyable. Most important thing...dive at slack tide. We were able to get... More

It was our first time coming to Riviera Beach and we wanted to explore Peanut Island. Floyd was so helpful. We rented snorkels which we liked so much we later bought them at a discounted price. He suggested all the best ways to explore the island and surrounding area. He gave us maps and explained how to get the ferry.... More

As a PADI certified divemaster, I was very particular about researching operators for my first trip to West Palm Beach. I'd heard so much about the Blue Heron Bridge and my plans included a teenage nephew who wanted to complete the advanced open water license. I gave a lot of thought to the trip and contacted several dive shops in... More

Family vacation with friends...we rented snorkeling equipment and kayaks, then headed to Peanut Island. Guys in the shop on Foster Island were very helpful in instructions on when best time and where to go snorkeling. Highly recommended the stop at the shop...worth the time and advice. Peanut Island has great snorkeling for all ages and abilities. The kayak ride over... More

We rented tanks and regulators for two days from the shop. People were great to work with and very accommodating! We love that they are right at the park and it's not an extra stop to get tanks filled.
