Evaluation

*Average:    3.81
This site can be dived year round. Enter the water 20-40 minutes prior to high tide (you're diving at the slack high tide period). I dove the west span and the fishing pier on 12/29/08 with a 3MM wet suit and was comfortable. Many critters such as bat fish, sea robins, flying gurnards, horseshoe crabs, sharp tailed eels, arrow crabs, scorpion fish, drums, parrotfish, trigger fish, spade fish, grunts, other tropicals, octopus, large sea stars (starfish), fire worms etc. etc. Sea floor is mucky, so be careful not to kick up sand which will limit vis for your dive buddy. Scope out the fisherman before entering the water, you don't want to get hooked and, depending on the number of people fishing, you might want to avoid the fishing pier. There are a couple of dive shops nearby for air fills or rental of equipment (I tend to use Force-E which is located west of Phil Foster Park, on Blue Heron Blvd.) Facilities are good with restrooms and outdoor showers. If fish are not being cleaned, you can use the hose at the cleaning station on the west side of the park to clean your gear. But give the fisherman (and woman) first dibs on the cleaning station. I just 'discovered' this dive site two months ago and have dove it 6 times. It is a nice change from boat/reef diving.
