The Riviera Beach / Singer Island Ocean Reef Park Snorkeling Beach Dive:
The reef at Ocean Reef Park is small and extremely close to shore. Even at high-tide, beach-goers can see the reef protruding from the ocean. Due to it’s location and free parking, this is a very popular spot on the weekends. Ocean Reef Park is a shallow beach dive which is protected by lifeguards. It’s great for beginners and non-Florida natives.

If you live and dive in Florida, this reef can be missed. It’s full of people of all ages, swimming around and walking on the reef. Because it’s so close to shore and people stirring up the sand, visibility at Ocean Reef Park is minimal.

This Singer Island snorkeling site is best around high tide. Scuba diving is not permitted at Ocean Reef Park, but snorkeling and free diving are.

NO NEED FOR A DIVE FLAG! (You must stay west of the swim buoy)

Interested in exploring two reefs on one dive? South of Ocean Reef Park is an artificial reef known as Riviera Reef which is a better reef. It’s also great for beginners. However,  you will need a flag at Riviera Reef.

  1. North Palm Beach cactus

    Nice one.

  2. Going up to Singer Island for a birthday and hopefully some snorkeling at Ocean Reef if the tide is right. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Hi there, was I was wondering if there was any overnight parking nearby for some nighttime exploration?

    • Hi Michael,

      Sorry for the delay with getting back to you. Please discard my last post. there isnt any public night parking super close to here. South of Ocean Reef Park is a plaza where WINGS (beachy store) is. You can park here and walk north.
