Some can’t miss dive excursions include the following:

  • Adelaide Baker – Lying in only 25 feet of water, this is a good dive for beginner and intermediate divers.
  • Sombrero Reef – Coral canyons and archways abound this system. You’ll see a multitude of tropical fish along with Snapper, Grouper and Grunt. Possibilities also exist for Moray, Sea Turtles and Lobster. This large area is a very nice dive.
  • Coffins Patch – Most of these coral patches lie in 20 feet or less, making it a nice intermediate to advanced snorkel locale or beginners scuba spot. You will also find some very nice Brain Coral specimens with the possibility of huge resident Barracuda sightings.
  • The Thunderbolt – 188 foot ship which is the main destination of advanced Divers in our area. The Bolt sits perfectly upright in 100 feet of water and is the home of large Angelfish, Jacks, and occasional pelagics.
  • The Gulf – You can drop your anchor in many areas of the shallow Gulf waters as an ideal location for children and beginner level snorkelers. With careful searching you’ll discover shells, lobster, a variety of different species of fish and many other interesting finds!

Snorkeling with the kids

Marathon

Self guided adventurers should take the children to the shallow gulf waters where they can explore sea life and shells in less than 6 feet for hours!

The variety of life that you’ll find on the Oceanside reefs will not be present but they’ll find more life and remnants than you may expect.  Shells, Lobster, and a variety of fish will keep them happy and provide great memories!
