SINGER ISLAND, FLA. — Exploring the underwater world is closer than you think, especially when taking the plunge at one of Florida's most diverse, easy-access dive spots, Phil Foster Park. While hiking trails are widely known, few have heard of snorkel trails. The name says it all: a string of artificial reefs close enough to shore and shallow enough for divers to explore without the need of a boat, expensive equipment or even much experience.

Phil Foster Memorial Park
Under the Blue Heron Bridge is a beach park with two lifeguard stations and white sandy beaches. You can follow the Underwater Snorkel Trail and see marine life like seahorses. There are also covered picnic areas with scenic views of the Intracoastal for lunch (there is a Subway nearby). If you have a boat, you can run home and drop it in the water at this location or you may want to rent jet skis or wave runners from Get Wet Water Sports located on the other side of the bridge.
