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.

The Blue Heron Bridge is a great dive with lots of diversity. Because it was a night dive we hired a divemaster from force-e diving. Mark was a great DM strongly recommend.

We are really happy we choose to rent equipment from Blue Heron Bridge Scuba. We did the night dive on 1/13 and we were able to keep our equipment for the morning high tide the next day, which was extremely convenient and cost effective. They were very accommodating and even came in early when we accidentally left one of the... More

Really enjoyed diving here even with rough weather making things a bit hectic. Good information available on the board in the park, very friendly life guard, and pretty quality facilities. We only dove the East side but water was clear and there was a lot to see. We can't wait to go back and dive the West and will make... More

Went to BHB SCUBA on New Year's Day for a boat dive. Returned the next day to dive the bridge because it looked so fun. First time there and it was so easy even without a guide. The staff in the shop were extremely helpful in pointing us where to go to see the best marine life. Even for January... More

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

Thanks for the nice review Scuba Joe. We've had some great changes to the trail area since September with 15 custom sculptured fish habitats along the trail, 600 tons of new rock and we're adding permanent warning signs to keep boats out of the protected ares. We look forward to seeing you again under the bridge! More

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
