Submitter Comments:
Of the five places I dived in Jan 2003 this was second only to breakers. It was easy to find the reef, clear, calm, and full of life. I saw angelfish, juvenile blue tangs, small grouper, doctor fish, triggerfish, schools of baitfish, a stingray, etc. I would not be surprised if lobster were in some of the ledges, but I did not see any, so maybe that is wishful thinking.

 from I 95 get off on Hillsboro Blvd in Deerfield beach. Go east until you get toA1A. Go north on A1A. The road might turn some, but continue on A1A until you get to the "Welcome to the city of Boca Raton" sign this is a good place to drop off your gear, there are parking meters about 400 yards south of here. Get into the beach using the access at the end of 7th street. Anywhere near this access is alright to get into the water. The reef starts between 150, and ends about 500feet off of the shore. It is hard to miss, and is pretty large.

08/18/2004 Jesse Rorabaugh (Avg: 3.69 Review) - This is a pretty dive that has a wide range of tropical fish. Since I went to it I have found sites that have impressed me much more though. The main drawback of this place is simply that it was not big enough. While it is enough to keep someone interested for an hour or two, it did not seem to have the seemingly endless reefs of breakers, John Lloyd park, or Vista park. That said it is a pretty dive well worth seeing
