  • Tough parking on weekend, need to keep an eye on equipment with so many people around but...that won't find better place for simple diving with lots of cool, tiny critters to see! Huge vari...  read more »
  • We saw starfish, eels, sea horses and multiple colored fish. There isn't much of a beach for sitting as it is really quite small. It's made for snorkeling or diving. It's better on a sunny day as you ...  read more »
  • Have gotten there by a local lifeguard to snorkeling the tip. The water quality is in itself quite well, however, there is a fairly strong current. It is partially an artificial reef (boat wreck, shopping baskets,...) We were unfortunately not so lucky when the watch the fish. There were some smaller fish, starfish, jellyfish, and a small ray. The beach is used by many locals for swimming. Therefore very crowded on the weekend.

  • Well....definitely not the best in the world as some have said. Dive location and swim beach located under the bridge and around the small island...different. We snorkeled 1.5 hour before high tide as recommended by the local dive shop. Saw a few small star fish and schools of fish around the bridge supports. Unfortunately, uneducated people are stepping on bottom vegetation during low tide. Most areas are barren or dying because of this destruction. RIVIERA BEACH POLICE HAVE THEIR HANDS FULL??? Can they do anything about the degenerates that hang out here during the day....very creepy. Drinking, smoking, cussing, using the outdoor showers to bathe. These men are living off the grid. They hang right by the playground and beach. A few just stare at the kids.....Possibly some are pedophiles? Surprised so many families let their small children run around unsupervised. I certainly would not. This is how kids disappear.
  • First time here, come early because it does get busy with snorkelers and divers. A lot of marine life very cool, the area does have a strong current from what i understand it is best during high tide. Also beware of your surroundings because you do have so many people in the water. Got to see me first turtle here very cool, If your first time snorkeling respect the wild life don't poke it with your fingers or Go Pro.
  • Perfect place to park car and jump in the clear water with your snorkeling gear. We have seen colorful fish and a beautiful starfish on our last trip. The only thing missing is the coral that we have seen at John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park at Key Largo and at Maui and Big Island, Hawaii. Great place for beginners and it's free. Was suggested to go under the bridge at either side to view more sea creatures but as we got close to the bridge it was a bit cloudy and you must beware of boats even with your flag, a must when snorkeling. Maybe under the bridge has good visibility for divers, idk. Was told should bring a knife with you around the fishing areas in case you run into a fishing line. Also go at high tide and don't wear any shiny jewelry.
  • This unremarkable little bridge might be the best diving/snorkeling spot in South Florida! The variety of sea life is too numerous to list in one review. The calm water and friendly atmosphere makes it a perfect place for novice divers and pros alike. You will not regret the trip!
  • Manatee, Starfish, Urchins, Crab, Lobster, Stingray and Seahorse.... SUPER PLACE FOR SNORKELING Weekends are Mobbed. Go early on WEEKDAYS. Perfect place for small children. No waves, no undertoe, shade, bathrooms, showers and playground
