  Dive & Snorkel Trips: MIAMI BEACH

  Miami Beach Diving
Miami is known as the "Wreckreational Dive Capitol of the World".  There are currently over 75 wrecks sunk and many more are slated to come over the next few years.  As the port of Miami is the busiest sea port in the world there are many opportunities to acquire new boats to sink.  Customs seizes vessels that were used to smuggle drugs and with the owners in jail and the ship quickly racking up dock fees, sometimes selling the boat for scrap is the only alternative.  Some boats arrive in Miami barely seaworthy and find their final resting place here in Miami.  DERM, the Dade County Environmental Resource Management division then negotiate with the owners (or customs) to take the boats, environmentally clean them and prepare them to be sunk off the shore of Miami for the intended use of sport diving and fishing.

The first boat to be sunk as a part of the artificial reef program was the Orion, a steel tug sunk off Key Biscayne in 1981. Since then freighters, barges, yachts, tugs, a water tower, oil platforms, army tanks and even a 727 has been sunk.  The latest addition was the Princess Brittany, a 160' tug sunk in May 2003.  She sits at 92' just three miles off shore. .

Typical aquatic life found in Miami are eels, grouper, snapper, Jewfish (or the new politically correct Goliath Grouper), stingrays, nurse sharks (harmless), tarpon, snook, cobia, octopus and a wide variety of tropical's.

Private charters, as well as Instructors, Divemaster's and Guides, are available by request. 

We do not offer snorkeling in Miami as the reefs here tend to be deeper and it is not guaranteed that you will see much from the surface. Please join one of our Key Largo trips if you want to experience world class snorkeling.

Due to scheduling conflicts with our Key Largo trips, we do not provide transportation to the boats in Miami except on Sunday. If logistics allow, we will try to give you a ride to the boat or else you can get an Uber for $5.00 The boat is only 10 blocks away in the Miami Beach Marina . She is a 46' Newton equipped with showers, camera table, stereo and a head (bathroom). Half the boat is shaded but there is plenty of room to get sun if you want.
