Dive Sites

These are some of the ones that we most commonly visit. The sites are chosen both by the group and the Captain, depending on weather and sea conditions, as well as expected visibility. We usually have the whole boat, and split up into 2 groups. Newly certified divers are welcome.

The Ana Cecelia wreck and The Corridor (80+ fsw): The Ana C. is the newest artificial reef in the area, sunk on 13 July 2016, and now the beginning of The Corridor. Fish have already gathered there, and the structure is well on it's way to being a living reef. Neptune divers have enjoyed the opportunity to explore this 170-foot, 629-ton freighter! We then drift over to The Mizpah, a 185ft. Greek luxury liner that was sunk in 1968. It is an excellent wreck that (for advanced divers) can be carefully penetrated, though some of the inside is in danger of collapse. The PC1170 is a 160 ft. patrol craft is split into two pieces below the Mizpah's bow, also sunk in 1968. The Amaryllis is 450ft. long and lies in 80ft of water. Only its hull and bottom deck remain. Goliath Grouper sightings are common.

Bath and Tennis (60 fsw): Nice selection of reef creatures, fish. Look for stingrays, lobsters.

Breakers reef: (60 fsw): One of the nicest reef systems in the Palm Beach area, if not the world. Lots of critters. Look for turtles. Nice for a night dive.

The Danny and Spud Barge (70-80 fsw): A great wreck trek for exploration. Looks for nudibranchs near the Spud Barge.

Double Ledges (90 fsw): Twin ledges that lie south of the inlet. Lots of marine life, and a good site for lobster hunters.

Governor's River Walk wrecks (90 fsw): The Shasha, the St. Jacques, the Thorzina, the Gilbert Sea. Big sharks abound.

Juno Ledge (80-100 fsw): A large, spectacular ledge with tunnels. Often a site to find large fish and sharks. The north area includes Spadefish Point.

Jupiter Wreck Trek (95 fsw): The Zion Train, the Miss Jenny, and the Esso Bonaire. Sharks and goliath groupers abound. A favorite dive site.

Midway Reef, Spearman's Barge (70-80 fsw): A nice reef with a worthy wreck.

Paul's Reef (60 fsw): A nice ledge with soft corals and rock crevices. The north part is Sloan's Curve.

Princess Anne (100 fsw): This is a 350 ft. long ferry boat once used to carry 800 people and some 200 automobiles across the Chesapeake Bay. It lies in an area with strong, shifting currents. It has been broken apart over the years. The interior was stunningly beautiful, but penetration is dangerous, especially since much of it has collapsed; it should only be attempted by advanced divers with a very experienced guide. Once inside, it is easy to get lost, resulting in a possible out-of-air situation or unplanned decompression dive. Goliath grouper sightings not rare.

Ron's Reef (60 fsw): Fairly undistinguished reef system, but can have lots of fish. Ron's Rock is at the north. Beyond that is the "Flower Garden."

Shark Canyon (70-80 fsw): The name says it all. Also, a nice reef system.

The Trench (60 fsw): This is a 12ft. wide trench cut through a section of Breaker's Reef before people knew better. This allows all kinds of animals (and divers) a place hide and escape the current. Nice aquatic life. It's John F.'s favorite dive site. Stay close to the dive guide because there are different ways to explore this site.
