technical dive sites

Palm Beach is home to many reefs and wrecks that qualify as Technical Dive Sites. In addition to being perfect for training, many of these sites are frequented by pelagic creatures like bull sharks, lemon sharks, and large schools of predatory fish (jacks, bonita, etc).  Furthermore, our long reef systems (60ft range) allow for long Rebreather dives with minimal decompression obligations. When you enroll in our Tec Courses or Professional Programs, you’ll enjoy diving on some of our most popular sites such as Playground, Hole in the Wall, and Korimu. Our Technical Dive Sites page will tell you all you need to know about these sites and others you’ll visit when you train at Pura Vida Divers.
