Started off on a warm morning. We went to the Boca Inlet first and saw a few barracuda ranging from 14 inches to 3.5 feet. Very few formations on the bottom but very easy to find, with clear water on calm days. Lifeguards were helpful. Then we went a mile south to the Deerfield Beach ledges. They are located 100 feet off shore, a little deeper than the Boca Inlet formations. The ledges here range from 10' to 14'. First impressions were many tropical fish. A lot of parrot fish, blow fish, angel fish, every other color fish you can think of. We were an hour into our dive and came across a culvert pipe laying next to one of the larger ledges. I decided to investigate and there was a 5 foot nurse shark resting under the ledge next to the culvert pipe. Later that day we saw a small leopard shark (about 2 feet). It was a great day with a lot of fun.
