Palm Beach is together with Miami, Fort Lauderdale and the Keys, one of the top diving destinations in the world. There are many scuttled dive sites just offshore within the three reef lines that create for many interesting types of dives. Visibilities often exceed 100 foot, water temperatures are warm year-round and most dive sites are reachable by boat within ten minutes. Whether you pick dive shops in the Riviera Beach, West Palm Beach or Lake Worth area, there are boats or shops that can book you on a tour at any time.
Palm Beach is a paradise for divers but also for other types of tourists. Next to Miami it has tourism agencies that are willing to book you on one of their tours everywhere. Ranging from camping trips to bird spotting tours, from city sightseeing buses to relaxed bars and lounges, it has it all. Completely arranged wildlife eco tours to several of the parks nearby are easy to find while doing everything yourself is one of the options as well. Getting up and strolling across its boulevards, beaches and soaking up its daily life is like being in another world. There are museums such as the Henry Flagler Museum considered to be the founder of West Palm Beach in 1894, birding tours and fishing and sailing trips in boats ranging from simple sailboats to hovercrafts, catamarans and multiple day cruises. There doesn't have to be time to get bored.
To be rated as the best dive sites in this region among many divers are the Amaryllis and the Mispah, which are often dived in a combination drift dive along Palm Beach Inlet. Playpen is another top dive site full of building materials and other concrete blocks, which have created a paradise for macroscopic creatures.
