Blue Heron Bridge Snorkeling

Blue Heron Bridge РA Great Family Day Trip!

Whether it’s Labor Day or Fall Break, families are looking for day trips this time of year! Vicki and I stumbled upon a great one and wanted to share it with you.

On our way to Fort Lauderdale recently, we planned a stop at Blue Heron Bridge for a day of snorkeling. We learned that we needed to check the High Tide Chart, so we planned around the high tide that day. In order to see the best assortment of fish, you need to arrive about 30 minutes before high tide.

We left Orlando at 7:00 AM and arrived around 9:30 AM, ready to see some marine life. And, boy, did we? We got to snorkel through sea horses, grunt fish, and even star fish?

As if that were not enough, we followed the snorkel trail and saw shipwrecks, crabs, and angelfish.

We spent about three hours total as we learned to snorkel, went through the trail, and then ate some lunch. We highly recommend it!
