Boca Raton is known for spectacular architecture and pastel colors. Scuba Diving and Snorkeling in Boca Raton is no less spectacular, the world famous "Aqua Zoo" is located just to the south of Boca Inlet. You'll see Stingrays, Moray Eels and Goliath Groupers all on one dive!
While the "Aqua Zoo" is just south of Boca Inlet, it is easier to dive Boca Raton from Hillsboro Inlet, because there are no commercial marinas in Boca.
Drift Diving in Boca Raton
Drift Diving, also nicknamed "Valet Diving" is extremely popular. South Florida's reef tract is linear and the warm Gulfstream current flows parallel to the shoreline creating perfect drift diving conditions. Unlike many dive destinations that make you swim out and back to the boat, in South Florida we simply drop you in with a flag and you drift until you are ready to surface, then we pick you up.
Advantages to Drift Diving
- Less stressful
- Explore more reef
- See more marine life
- More bottom time
- More Freedom
