Adventurers Dive Log: Scuba Diving in Palm Beach Dive Locations, Boynton Inlet to Dania Pier

BOYNTON LEDGE



Depth: 60' to 65' in sand, 50' on top.

Location: Seaward of buff Gulfstream Golf Clubhouse, with red tiled roof. 4 1/4 miles S of Boynton Inlet

Description: Location, on inside edge, is often vertical with caves. Runs at least half a mile N & S. Excellent for "riding the anchor" or drift diving in N or S currents.

Depth: 60' to 65' in sand, 50' on top.

Critters: Because of ledges and caves, it often has baitfish & a few groupers, snappers, jacks, barracuda; & some yellowtail & amberjack, with hogfish in sand. Tropicals plentiful plus corals, seawhips & fans covering the reef. Edible fish are often rare and spooky!

Cautions: Use caution when currents are strong. Set the anchor & swim into the current if you are anchor diving, a good possibility in this area. Always be cautious near the bow of a boat. It can crack your skull!

Remarks: Fly your DIVER DOWN flag as law requires and for safety! Note shapes of water towers. Rounded or pointed tops & height will identify proper water tower.
