North of West Palm Beach and Fort Pierce, the snorkeling at Jaycee Park is well known for its reef in 15 feet of water that provides habitat for eels, lobsters and reef fish including surgeonfish, tangs and sergeant majors. About 400 feet further beyond the first reef, there is a second reef structure which provides habitat to more diverse marine life. A dive flag is highly recommended. To reach the snorkeling in southeast Florida by air, there are several options. The most popular option is to fly into Miami International Airport (MIA), which is served by all major US and international airlines. Also nearby, a potentially lower cost option is to fly into Ft Lauderdale airport (FLL). From either of these airports, you can rent a car to drive to the dive site, but watch out for automated cash-less toll highways along the way.
Overall, Jaycee Park is the 17th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 24 snorkeling dives in Florida Southeast. Several of the better snorkeling spots are nearby Jaycee Park including Peanut Island, Coral Cove Park, Bathtub Reef, Ocean Reef Park, Fort Pierce Inlet State Park and Riviera City Beach.
