Martin County Florida

One of the more popular sports for Floridians is underwater diving. Local waterways have many beautiful reefs and colorful marine life. Snorkeling and scuba diving bring out many visitors and residents to the beaches, rivers and offshore spots to "Enjoy Our Good Nature" underwater.

The reefs are located approximately three to eight miles offshore. Area oceanographers have photographed thriving marine life amid the decks of the Rankin and other junk collections. The State of Florida, Department of Natural Resources, authorizes all the artificial reefs.

Diving for lobsters is a tastefully rewarding pastime for residents and visitors alike. There is a two-day lobster season for sport divers in July, prior to the regular season. Limits are 6 lobsters/crawfish per day per diver. The regular season is August 1 - March 31.

When it comes to what attracts most people to Florida, Martin County offers its visitors and residents alike some of the finest beaches on the east coast. Officials and residents have worked hand-in-hand to assure access to the Atlantic Ocean, various river parks and Lake Okeechobee as another way to "Enjoy Our Good Nature".

Martin County's natural resources really begin at its coastline. You can enjoy this natural scene with a walk on the beach, hunting for shells during a day of "fun in the sun," taking advantage of the waves, windsurfing at a local causeway or watching for large, lumbering sea turtles crawling ashore to lay their eggs in the sand. Kick off your shoes and let the sand sift between your toes, or wet a line for some of the best surf, river and lake fishin` in the state.
