Shark Diving in Jupiter

General Information

South Florida has some of the the best shark diving in the United States and Jupiter is one of top shark diving destinations in the world. Not only does this location have large numbers of sharks, but it is also home to a variety of high profile species such as the Tiger, Great Hammerhead, Bull, Dusky, Silky, Reef, Sandbar and Lemon Sharks. While we can’t guarantee that you’ll spot sharks on every dive (since they are wild pelagic creatures), we almost always see a great variety of sharks on every dive at this location.

The large Lemon shark population makes for a thrilling cage-free shark dive year round! Each season brings in different species; the Great Hammerheads and Tigers sharks pass by during their winter migration, and the Dusky and Silky sharks love to stop by in the summer when the water warms up.  Dozens of big lemons, bull sharks, nurse sharks, and the occasional hammerhead regularly patrol the 90’ to 130’ ledge and 80’ wrecks. We’ve even spotted Whale Sharks and Manta Rays there as well! Massive Loggerhead Turtles and Goliath Groupers jostle for pole position, so get your cameras and GoPro’s ready for a remarkable dive trip.

The Project AWARE Shark Conservation Specialty Course is available on all shark dives. In this course you will learn about the unique physical attributes of sharks, how to identify sharks in our area, what their conservation status is, and what the key management strategies are that can protect our sharks – including what DIVERS can do to help.  This course includes a PADI certification card, Project AWARE shark conservation study guide, and professional instructor guiding you on all three shark dives.
