Recognized as one of the world's premier scuba diving vacation destinations, Palm Beach County consistently awards SCUBA divers with unique encounters and an extraordinary marine environment! Rated the 4th Best Overall Destination and 4th Healthiest Marine Environment in North America by Rodale's Scuba Diving in their annual Top 100 Reader's Choice Awards, Palm Beach County offers incredible coral reef ecosystems and outstanding wreck diving with depths ranging from 30 to 130 feet. Visibility here is an average of 60 feet, but 100 feet plus is not unusual. Water temperatures are warm and comfortable for year-round diving.
Jupiter has some of the most beautiful dive locations in the state and maybe even the world, thanks to the Gulf Stream being right off our coasts. With the Gulf Stream being just off-shore, all of your diving is Drift Diving, which is when you are transported by the currents caused by the tide.
Palm Beach County has more than 30 artificial reefs with more being added all the time. These reefs are built from various materials such as rock, heavy gauge steel structures, and prefabricated modules and of course old ships.
These artificial reefs attract more than 350 species of fish, 5 species of sea turtles and a vast amount of rays, eels and sharks that make their homes along the many miles of reef lines. You will have the opportunity to encounter amazing marine animals as well as macro life and an abundance of tropical fish and corals, not to mention that every year from May until October; Palm Beach County beaches are the home of nesting Loggerhead, Green, and Leatherback sea turtles.
