Florida is one of the most popular places in the world to scuba dive. Unlike the Florida Keys, where the reefs are only accessible by boat, the Town's coral reefs are located within 100 yards of the beach. Because of our popularity with divers, the Town is known as Florida's Beach Diving Capital. The Town's great beach diving has been featured on ScubaNation TV, a Fox Sun Sports program.
The Town is also home to BugFest-By-The-Sea, a dive festival centered around Florida's annual two-day lobster mini-season, which is always the last consecutive Wednesday and Thursday in July. BugFest includes bug hunting workshops, lobster chef competition and the Great Florida Bug Hunt, where divers can win $10,000 in cash and dive-gear prizes.
If you dive or snorkel our reefs, remember to exercise caution by always avoiding diving or swimming near Anglin's Pier at Commercial Boulevard. You must also display the red-and-white-striped "Diver's Down" flag beyond the cylinder-shaped swim buoys located just offshore. . It's not just good safety advice, it's the law.
