Ocean Inlet Park In Boynton Beach:

Ocean Inlet Park Map | Boynton BeachThe reef at Ocean Inlet Park in Boynton Beach is an artificial reef constructed of giant boulders. This mitigation reef was a 5-month project that was completed in January 2010. The north end of the Ocean Inlet Park reef is less than a 5-minute walk from the South Lake Worth Inlet (Boynton Inlet). The reef is about 375 feet out from the beach and sits in 6 to 12 feet of water. Entering the water in front of the third set of rocks on the beach is recommended. This will allow you to tell where the current is coming from, while not over shooting the reef. From the beach and while in the water, you are able to see the dark areas in the ocean which is the reef.

Due to the Ocean Inlet Park reef’s proximity to the inlet, this is a busy boating area and you MUST use a dive flag when scuba diving and snorkeling here.

Ocean Inlet Park In Boynton Beach, Florida

  1. Snorkel and swim Ocean reef every day. Seen big fish nurse sharks eel green and black lobster eagle ray. Scuba yesterday on 60′ Boynton reef looking for 20′ reef closer to shore to view from my boat with hooka air?

  2. This is great. I am new to snorkeling but have been going about 3 days a wk for last few months. I have seen some amazing stuff. 3 moray eels and 1 big octopus. Now that I know where they are I see them almost every time I go. 2 lion fish, 2 cornetfish. 2 eagle rays. A group of fish that were about 3′ long chasing a school of small fish. I was right in the middle of it all.
    Boats and jet skis should be regulated tho.

  3. I’ve been living in SoFlo for most of my life. I really want to get into snorkeling, it seems like a fun, and budget friendly way to explore our ocean. Would this location be a good spot for a beginner?

  4. Finally tried this spot on Labor Day. Poor viz that day, but had a great “guide” and concentrated on some little stuff. https://www.flickr.com/photos/mentalblock/albums/72157685786011691/page1

    Also snorkeled it once earlier in the year and noticed some unique stuff, including huge puddingwives, schools of sennet, and some large reef squid. Looking forward to trying it, again.
