The Blue Heron Bridge, just steps from Coralcopia's front door, is called “Florida’s exotic critter capital."
Scuba diving at the world renowned Blue Heron Bridge, also known as Phil Foster Park, is something every diver who visits West Palm Beach, Florida should experience. The Blue Heron Bridge is known as one of the best dive sites in the world for good reasons… Its diversity of marine life and its easy accessibility are just two of the many important traits of this terrific dive site.
When you dive the bridge, you encounter numerous sea creatures that are a rarity to find throughout the world. Seahorses and pipefish in all sizes and colors make the top of the list at this amazing dive site. Octopus, including the Atlantic long arm (aka. mimic octopus), can be found here. Add to the list the odd marine life such as sea robins, flying gurnards, batfish, frogfish, stargazers, and over 100 different species of nudibranchs.
It's a simple and free beach shore dive. The deepest depth you’ll find at the bridge is just over 20 feet. A 45 minute to two hour dive is the norm here. Best of all, no matter what the weather is like out on the open ocean, the Blue Heron Bridge is still accessible for diving thanks to its location in the protected Lake Worth Lagoon. Few dive sites in the world give you the option to dive when the weather turns for the worst.
There is snorkeling at Phil Foster Park (at the bridge), too! Even those who are not scuba certified can enjoy this amazing marine park. The Phil Foster Park Artificial Reef and Snorkel Trail is an 800-foot-long tract of artificial reef incorporating more than 600 tons of Anastasia rock boulders in a depth ranging from six to ten feet. In the short span of time since it was created, the Reef and Snorkel Trail has attracted countless marine life. All kinds of juvenile tropical fish can be seen flirting in and out of this artificial reef.
