World-Class Drift Diving
Stuart, Jupiter and the Palm Beaches offer world class drift diving along Florida’s Treasure Coast year-round. Because the gulf stream comes the closest to shore in these areas, we offer some of the largest reef ledges in the region to drift dive. Our ledges are home to some of the most beautiful and unique species of corals, tropical fish, invertebrates, and crustaceans. Depths range from 60-100ft recreational dives down to 180ft and beyond for some of our technical wreck dives.
Both areas are home to some of the largest sea life on the Florida east coast. Many large game fish are also seen in these waters, and you can often see dolphins leaping out of the water in the boat’s wake. Do you love sea turtles? Our coastline has several species that call this area home. They can be found resting under ledges or swimming happily beside you as you drift along our spectacular reefs.
Stuart Scuba will offer trips tailored for all skill levels. Our world-class reefs make a wonderful weekend dive destination, whether you are just starting the sport or are an advanced technical diver.
Drift Diving makes up the majority of our dive trips, with several trips a week available and private bookings available any time upon request.
Wreck diving is unique. The history of the wreck, the community of fishes and corals that gather at the wrecks and make them their homes, and the adventure of this special form of diving is something you won’t want to miss, and will certainly never forget. Goliath groupers, sharks and moray eels frequent these special places.
Stuart Scuba offers excellent wreck diving opportunities. We have wrecks for all skill levels and depths, including open water all the way to advanced technical dives. Technical wreck diving is only on a scheduled basis. But contact Stuart Scuba if you would like to do a wreck dive on one of our regularly scheduled dive trips. Ocean conditions permitting we always try to accommodate our divers’ requests for specific reefs or wrecks.
Springs and Caves
Florida not only has world class saltwater diving, but also offers spectacular freshwater diving opportunities. We have miles of spring fed rivers and lakes to explore, as well as the springs hemselves that feed them.Florida’s springs are one the crown jewels of our state’s aquatic environment. Dive the gin clear waters year-round at a constant cool and refreshing 72*F. At the head of many of the larger springs you will often find a cavern and cave system to explore. There are more than 60 miles of underwater caves to explore in Florida alone, providing breathtaking sights and experiences around every turn. Stuart Scuba offers Cavern and Cave courses to teach you how to safely dive these enchanting and mysterious locations. Most of our springs are located in Central and North Florida and special trips are planned throughout the year to visit these locations. Please contact Stuart Scuba for more information.
