This was our first shore dive. We had all our equipment except for tanks and a flag. The staff was very friendly and we rented what we needed with no problems. The dive was excellent. Can't wait to go back and do it again.

I have had wonderful snorkeling experiences at this location. During high tide the visibility is very good and there are lots of beautiful fish to see.

Great place to snorkel at high tide, some downfalls would be bums living under the bridge where it smells of pee and marijuana smoke. Place could be cleaner as well. This place could be off the charts with a little Tlc.

Great beach for children of all ages. Lots of shade available. Fenced playground with safe equipment for young children. Ample parking. Shallow clear water for young children to wade and play in. Calm water!!

A friendly operator providing tanks and gear for self-guided dives at Blue Heron Bridge. Although visibility is sometimes poor, the dive is great fun, with many interesting creatures to see.

This is a public place. You can bring you own. Before you go, download the map on-line so you will know where to swim- and were to not swim. (It is adjacent to a channel with boats).
