SEA EMPRESS: This 90 ft. barge sits in 74 feet of water upside-down, and was loaded with cement conduits, which spilled into the sand. This makes great hiding places for lobster, Grouper, and tons of tropical fish. It has resident Goliath groupers who live in the stern area. Large nurse sharks are seen here often on night dives as well as lots of friendly stingrays. This is a must-see dive. And definitely bring your camera! This is a great dive here in South Palm Beach county! Boats come from different counties to dive this wreck. It’s a long trip for them but a short trip for us since it’s right out the Boca Raton inlet.
Some of the most amazing reef dives in North America are right here in the Boca Raton Area here in Florida!! All the reef systems run north and south along the coast of Florida. And range in depth from 25 to 100 feet. We have 3 separate reef lines 1st being in depths of 15-25 ft in depth and our 2nd reef is in 25-50 ft in depth and our 3rd and best reef system ranges from 40 to 100 ft in depth. our reefs here have a beautiful west-facing ledge that can drop 35 ft on our 3rd reef to 15 ft on our 2nd reef. Little mini walls if you will. Sealife congregates on this side of the reef because of the structure and hiding places on the west side. There are a few ” patch reefs ” where the best is in the middle. Sealife both big and small abounds on our reefs. Sharks, goliath groupers, turtles, stingrays, and huge schools of fish and lobsters abound on our reefs!! Also, our reefs are just minutes away from our inlet. All our dives are within a mile of the beach or less. This is Florida’s best kept secret.
