Gulfstream Park Beach Dive:

Gulfstream Park ReefMany people debate whether Gulfstream Park is in Delray Beach or Boynton Beach. According to Palm Beach County, Gulfstream Park is in the small town of Gulf Stream. The Gulfstream Park reef is artificial and constructed of giant boulders. This amazing snorkeling site is great for beginners and those who are more experienced. While many fish have made Gulfstream Park home, Countless squid and nurse sharks also inhabit the reef. With a max depth of 13 feet, it’s easy to diving down to see the nurses under the boulders. The reef starts only about 300 feet from shore. Be careful When entering the water at Gulfstream Park as there’s a natural reef near where the waves break on the beach.

Scuba diving is not permitted at Gulfstream Park.

Parking at Gulfstream Park is free, but note there are only about 70 spots. We recommend getting here early to avoid having to stalk cyclists and beach goers for a spot. The Gulfstream Park lot is open from 8am to sunset.

  1. Why is scuba diving not allowed? How can that be enforced? I don’t think that is fair.
