Diving Blue Heron Bridge, Three-Day Weekend to Dive Blue Heron Bridge // West Palm Beach Florida

Summer is coming up, and we sure hope there is diving in the plans. Making a dive plan in advance gives us something to look forward to and a reason to go over our gear. Here’s a typical schedule for us for a three-day weekend of diving Blue Heron Bridge in West Palm Beach.

Blue Heron Bridge is a shore dive with depths of 5-20 ft. There is a snorkel trail to the south and there are three wrecks under the east bridge – enough to see for multiple dives. Diving at slack high gives the best results. Diver Down flags are required; so please add these to your check list!
