Roddenberry Adventures and NAUI West Palm Beach Dive
“A West Palm Beach Dive Adventure After DEMA”

Check back a few days before the dive for any additional information and itinerary or dive boat location updates due to weather and conditions!

Join Roddenberry Adventures and NAUI for a post-DEMA dive adventure in beautiful West Palm Beach, FL. Palm Beach County is one of the best kept secrets in the scuba dive community with a coral reef line that stretches 45 miles along its coast. The Gulf Stream flows within just a few miles of shore creating world class drift diving.

Divers will enjoy 2 coral reef drift dives in approximately 50’-65’ feet of water over vibrant reefs with an amazing abundance and wide variety of tropical fish life. The average visibility is 60-70 feet, while days of 100 plus feet of visibility are common. Water temperature varies from the mid 80’s in the summer to the low 70’s in the winter. In keeping with safe drift diving practices local boats utilize dive floats to track their divers.

We are diving with Aqua Safari Adventures on Little Deeper located at Phil Foster Park at The Blue Heron Bridge. The expected return time will be around 5:30pm, however it depends on weather, water conditions, dive times, etc. Always allow for the unexpected! After the dive we will grab a bite to eat at nearby restaurant (everyone will be responsible for paying for their own dinner.

West Palm Beach is approximately a 2 ½ hour dive from Orlando. If you’re already planning on going to Orlando for DEMA, or just feel like jumping in the water, please join us for a wonderful West Palm Beach dive adventure!
