This group is for freedivers and snorkelers, especially for those seeking an unparalleled connection to the natural world--something that freediving can deliver like no other sport. No, we're not really into spearfishing and lobstering. No cloak of endeavor necessary.
We do shore dives. There are many reefs, both natural and artificial, that are close to the shore. Let's locate them via GPS and experience them together!
Between 1947 and 1969, several hurricanes, and then finally a demolition crew, destroyed "the Rainbow Pier." It crumbled into the sea, and much of its debris is still there, sunken in 18 feet of water right off of the beach in front of Worth Avenue. There are also two bowl-shaped ledges (limestone reefs) to explore, one to the north and one to the south.
Parking is available along A1A, and there's free two-hour parking on Hammon Ave, one block south.
The pier debris and the two reefs are home to sting rays, sergeant majors, stonefish, pufferfish, grunts, tarpon, trigger fish, and barracuda.
