Breakers Reef

According to many local dive boat operators, Breakers Reef is one of the prettiest in the Palm Beach area. It is aptly-named for its location just offshore of the Breakers Hotel, one of the world's most famous luxury resorts.

The inside reef lies in about 40 feet of water, with the outside edge, further east, in about 60 feet. The ledge is very long and runs north and south, twisting occasionally. It is beautifully decorated with sea fans, sea plumes and various soft corals, often swaying in the currents. Sponges adorn the ledge. Sea turtles can often be found sleeping under the ledges, sharing their refuge with octopus and spiny lobsters. A school of Atlantic Spadefish frequents this area, as well as a pack of barracuda.

This colorful reef has a coral encrusted statue of King Neptune, six feet tall, in approximately 55 feet of water, at one end of the ledge, reigning over "his" portion of the ocean realm. This makes a great photo opportunity.
