This is a world class muck dive! One of the closest points to the Gulfstream current, you just never know what you may find! We've documented 2 electrogenic fish, over 400 species of fish. Nudibranchs and it is a great place to study underwater photography. With a maximum depth of 23 feet, it is a 1 tank dive- but its a 2 hour dive! Your only restriction is the currents. Imperative to dive 1 hour before High tide on the outgoing tide. The area is equivalent to two American footbal fields. The currents can be ripping on either side ( the intra-coastal waterway and the channel to the inlet). And you must dive with a flag. So, you have to stay out of the channel. The little bridge has been under construction, and they made a mess of that. Under the big bridge is a wonderland of surprises to be found. The place is a nursery, and a migration place for mating couples underwater ( marine life... that is).
