Evaluation

*Average:    3.24
I live in South Florida and snorkel south of Anglin Pier all the time. For a while the pier was closed for hurricane renovations, but now it is open so keep 500 feet away. Looking at the pier, the covered structure in the middle marks the distance from shore where the old cannons are dropped. At the end of the pier is where the first reef or the "swiss cheese" is. This reef is only about 10 feet deep, so you can see all kinds of marine life. Turtles, nurse sharks, squid, angels and the usual small reef fish are all present. A great place for novice snorkelers and divers. Watch the direction of the currents which can be up to 5 MPH here. Swim in from the beach upstream of where you would like to drift over and let the current do the work. Also, someone in your group MUST have a dive flag, even when snorkeling, because South Florida has a lot of idiot boaters.
