The South Inlet Park reefs are both natural (west & north) and artificial (east). Located on the south side of the Boca Raton Inlet, these reefs are in about 12 feet of water. You can spend a lot of time here as the reefs are close and expansive.

The natural reef starts about 175 feet offshore and runs from the jetty to beyond South Inlet Park. The natural reef is covered in sand, but has sea grass growing on it. Many non-fish marine creatures can be found here.  The artificial reef is 325 feet off shore and runs from the main walkway of South Inlet Park to the south side of the building south of the park. Pay attention to the current to determine the best entry point.

Do not swim around the jetty!

Like most of South Florida, you MUST use a dive flag when scuba diving and snorkeling at South Inlet Park.

    Great reef for a short or long snorkel trip. I dive here constantly and its a very calm and relaxed place to practice freediving. Since hurricane Sandy the rocks have had some extra sand built up but that is starting to fade and the reef should be back to complete normality in about another month. The reef has a plentiful supply of medium sized snapper and some occasional Yellow Tail Jack. perfect for the novice spearfisherman. A great reef for all types of divers.
