  • I have been snorkeling in probably 30+ places in Florida, and this is definitely in my top 5 so far. There are so many places in Florida with clear water, but this is unique because it's in the ocean ...  more »

  • Pretty nice little beach under bridge. Pros: free parking. A small shaded play ground for kids. Beach is under shade of bridge. Small wave. Water is very clean. A lot of fish for snorkeling and fishing. Cons: sand is little dirty.
  • Phil Foster park is amazing for locals and tourists. Free parking, boat launch and in shore diving, snorkeling and just beaching it. My Island's Adventure charter can take you fishing, snorkeling Peanut Island or cruising around, right from Phil Foster. High tide is the most beautiful time of the day! Best day on the water! - First Mate Ashley My Islands Adventure charter with Captain Tim Hoban
  • Free parking and fast access to scuba and snorkeling. Downside? Lots of cigarette butts in the sand. Lots of jelly fish. Fumes from nearby boats at times. A hangout for homeless under the bridge can make it seem unsavory. But nobody bothered us. Scuba under the bridge is said to be number one five spot in the world for accessibility and variety of fish.snorkeling area is less impressive. Artificial reefs do have some nice specimens but somewhat hard to locate and the window of time for visibility is only msybe 2 hours around high tide.
  • Great snorkelling, like really great. This is an ideal spot to bring folks who aren’t strong swimmers as you don’t have to battle waves as you would in the ocean. You do have to be mindful of the tides however. The beach itself is a narrow strip of sand so it gets pretty congested and should be avoided on holidays unless you haven’t got another option. It attracts a real cross-section of people, from locals to tourists; don’t expect a peaceful or quiet setting, and don’t bring any valuables.
  • We love this place. Nice relaxing shallow dives, snorkeling, or just playing in the water. There is something for everyone. If diving or snorkeling, be sure to do it at high tide when the water is clear and the tide is calmed. Diving when the tides are coming and going will give you a workout and the water will not be as clear. Visibility is usually better than excellent at high tide, and the variety and amount of sea life does not compare to any other dive I have done so far. Don't miss this spot, it may be better than a boat dive. Great for snorkeling too, but most of the cool stuff is under the east side of the bridge and can be a little dark at certain times of day. If snorkeling, pick a day when high tide will give you top sunlight.
