Phil Foster Park at Blue Heron Bridge


About the event

 We will be doing a one tank at Blue Heron Bridge. We will enter the water around 1:05 during the slack tide (High Tide is at 2:05 PM). Rental gear is available at Pura Vida Divers. Please let us know ahead of time if you need to rent dive gear. 

Plan on arriving at Pura Vida Divers by 11:30 AM if you are renting gear. 

Be at Phil Foster Park no later than 12:15 pm to ensure that you have plenty of time to gear up.  

Check out this website for more information about Blue Heron Bridge: 

Blue Heron Bridge is one of the world’s premier dive sites. 

Voted in 2013 as“The Best Dive Site in the World” by Sport Diver Magazine, the diversity of life, ease of access and Florida’s warm waters and great weather make it a great place to dive any time of the year. The diverse ecosystem of this top-rated dive site sits just inside Palm Beach County’s largest estuary, the Lake Worth Inlet. Since the area is protected by the Inter Coastal Waterway, scuba diving is possible in weather conditions that would restrict boat or shore diving off Florida’s East Coast. 

Phil Foster Park is located at 900 Blue Heron Boulevard, Riviera Beach, FL 33404. Heading East on Blue Heron Boulevard from I-95, Florida’s Turnpike, or Hwy 1 you cross over the Blue Heron Bridge and look for the traffic signal at the entrance to Phil Foster Park just before exiting the bridge onto Singer Island. Turning into Phil Foster Park from Blue Heron Blvd look for the parking lot on the left side of the entry road that runs parallel to the beach and the bridge. Your water entry will be from the beach under the bridge. To the right you will see a restroom, the boat trailer parking and the boat launch areas. Do not park in the boat trailer areas (there is a fine) or enter the water from the docks around the boat launch ramps. The parking spots along the South side of the park bordering the beach under the bridge fill up fast, so give yourself plenty of time to find a parking spot and arrive a couple of hours prior to high tide on weekends and holidays. Park your car in one of these locations or in the West side of the park avoiding long spaces reserved for vehicles with boat trailers.
