Exceptional Watersports, a Bounty of Marine Life The Breakers Palm Beach is the best-kept-secret for those who want soft adventure in tandem with a luxury resort experience. Set against one of Florida’s finest beaches and located just a half mile from one of the world’s most incredible coral reefs, The Beach Club offers active travelers a dynamic menu of watersports – a comprehensive SCUBA diving program and certification, snorkeling, reef tours and kayak excursions and boogie board rentals – and access to an amazing sanctuary of marine life.
The natural treasures found off shore are attributed to two different hurricanes dating back to the 1920s, which destroyed a 1000-foot pier that extended out from The Breakers' shoreline. The ruins beneath the sea resulted in extraordinary pristine coral reef formations – now a habitat for some 400+ species of marine life including fish, crustaceans, sponges and invertebrates. Today, the reef is sought out by watersports enthusiasts from around the globe, who have observed everything from turtles to stingrays within a mile of the sands of The Breakers. Voted in the top 100 by Florida’s former leading dive magazine, Rodale’s Scuba Diving, for best fish life and best overall diving, Palm Beach County’s natural reefs begin just off The Breakers with reef lines at 25, 60, 80 and 100 feet along the coast.
The resort’s expertly trained watersports team offers personalized adventures for experienced sports enthusiasts and memorable excursions for amateurs. SCUBA, snorkeling and boating are among its most popular offerings – activities that enable guests to visit myriad sea life, explore different areas of Palm Beach by boat, or take out a kayak for some fun at sea.
SCUBA lessons are available for adults and children (8 and older) as follows:
Discover SCUBA (8 years and up): provides non-divers the opportunity to dive in the safe and controlled confines of a swimming pool
