As beginner snorkelers, we were hoping to find a place to discover. While there is a heavy current, there are so many benefits. There are lifeguards until 6PM so there is a feeling of safety in the strong currents. The lifeguards were also very personable...More

Located under the Blue Heron Bridge, this park makes you forget where you are. An oasis in the middle of an urban area. The snorkeling trail is so worth it, however, be sure to hit the trail at high tide. At all other times, the...More

We heard great things about diving at Phil Foster Park but it was much better than we expected. The life under the east bridge blew us away. We've been diving for a few years now and I saw more new species on the first dive...More

For two days we wanted to see beautiful water and snorkel in the place people call amazing. Not sure what was wrong but it was beautiful for both days. Calm water. But the water had a yellowish look at high tide and we could barely...More

Yes, there are two outdoor showers to rinse off yourself and your gear. Instead of being located by the bathrooms, they are by the sidewalk to the left of the playground if you were headed toward the water.
