Deerfield Beach Scuba Diving & Snorkeling

swim thru8x10(1)Deerfield Beach has no inlet to the ocean,  however there is great Scuba Diving and Snorkeling off Deerfield Beach.

Most divers & snorkelers travel to Pompano Beach to access Deerfield Beach dive sites from the Hillsboro Inlet. Deerfield Beach is home to the famous wreck dive of the Ancient Mariner.

When diving Deerfield Beach another popular dive site is Seperated Rocks. This reef is a series of coral islands with two angel statues commemorating fallen divers. It's like playing connect the dots under water.

Drift Diving in Deerfield Beach

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
