West Palm Beach (Advanced)
Drift dive in swift currents!
Saturday, October 15th:
The blue waters of the Gulf Stream dip closest to Florida here which creates a mild current (1 knot average) running parallel to the wrecks and reef lines. The gentle current allows divers to drift effortlessly along all the dive sites plentiful with marine life. Check in at Ocean Quest Scuba at 12:00 noon. Advanced criterion applies.
