Weather and conditions permitting I am planning a beach dive at ocean inlet park this coming Monday 7/3/17. I am planning on timing the low tide at 10:51 with a dive window from 10:30 to 11:30. The reef is about a 300 FT swim out, average depth 6-12 feet. I have all my gear and a dive flag. I will be going out solo if I can’t get a buddy but much rather perfer one! More info on the site can be found here

Have you done this site before? It’s not listed either as the park or the inlet and this snowbird is always looking for spots during the winter.

I just added the dive site with the info from Sink or Swim. Why are you going for low tide, viz is usually better at high tide?

Sorry I could not post before. You are correct viz is always better at high tide. On that day high tide was late in the afternoon so I timed the low tide for calmer waters. I ended up snorkeling the site and it was nice, average depths were about 8-10 feet. The artificial reef structures were full of fish, sergeant majors, grunts, ocean tangs, damsel fish, blennies- the usual florida sightings.
