Overview
More
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.

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).
