Perry St. Rockpile Dive

     The Perry St. Rockpile is a generous string of car-sized boulders strewn north to south about 150 yards off the beach.  Although a relatively new site, it is maturing as an artificial reef and has developed into a respectable habitat for lobsters, sharks, rays, eels, and every imaginable local reef species of fish.  Occasionally, tarpon pass overhead cruising the coast.

     We'll meet and gear up in the parking spots adjacent to the Dania Beach Grill as south as possible.  From there, we can walk south to the site or enter the surf and explore down to it.   Once there, photographers and site-seers can go their separate ways in buddy teams.  Lobster gathers should have low expecations because late season pickings at the site are slim.

     This is a good dive for beginner divers.  Freshwater showers are available but no restrooms.  Parking meters take card and cash.

    I have changed the meet and parking location because the original parking site is no longer safe or secure. One of our dive teams had their vehicle entered and robbed in broad daylight yesterday at Perry St., so I no longer recommend that location. Dania Beach is much safer and the dive site is broader. You can also reach Perry St. Rocks from there.
