Diving in the Gold Coast

The Gold Coast is the area from Miami, to the north along the east coast of Florida. This area is a treasure full of amazing dive sites. Plenty of artificial and actual shipwrecks can be found in the Gold Coast. The Wreck Trek of Miami and the Corridor in Palm Beach have many wrecks that you can see during a single dive. In the Gold Coast, you can have great reef dives and spot amazing sea life such as the spiny lobster, many turtle species, sharks, rays, and the occasional dolphin. Drift diving is done in this region due to the Gulf Stream flowing through these waters, so remember to show up with your Waves, Tides, and Currents certification.
