Ron’s reef aka Ron’s Rock? - West Palm Beach FL

Ron’s reef aka Ron’s Rock? is a boat accessible salt water dive site, located in West Palm Beach, FL. This dive site has an average rating of 4.14 out of 5 from 7 scuba divers. The maximum depth is 61-70ft/19-21m. The average visibility is 41-50ft/12-15m. This dive site provides bathrooms and airfills.

From JASA’s site: Tear Drop and Ron’s Rock — Another beautiful 45—60 foot reef, this area is well known for turtles, lobsters and tropical fish. It does not have as much relief as some of the others until you get to the north end, where you find Ron’s Rock. This is a section of the reef that is completely separate from the main section. We’ve even seen hammerhead sharks here!

Went there 7/19/13. Was my favorite site in the area, as it had the largest ledges and some small swim-throughs. A memorial plaque rests near Rons Rock. What made this site memorable was a Goliath Grouper (500 lbs?) which hovered near Rons Rock and occasionally rested on the sand, watching for unwary fish.
