Jupiter Drift Divers: A Popular Group of Dedicated Divers
September 2, 2016 | Richard Sites
Jupiter has some of the finest scuba diving in Florida, partly because of the warm, clear water and partly because of the reefs and artificial reefs (wrecks) which provide habitat for fish. Unlike the Florida Keys where most of the diving is in 40-50 feet of water, most of the diving here is between 50-90 feet.

One of the local dive groups is the Jupiter Drift Divers.
These enthusiastic, experienced divers meet monthly for presentations on marine topics and to plan upcoming events and trips. September’s speaker was renowned Photojournalist/Professional Underwater Photographer, Walt Sterns who gave us a great and informative talk with a Keynote presentation.
For over 20 years, Walt Stearns’ writing and extraordinary imagery have graced a wide range of broadcast, print and online media, earning him the reputation as one of the world’s most credible and frequently published photojournalists. The photo above is of a Goliath Grouper, one of our local underwater attractions.
If you are a scuba diver in the Jupiter area or moving to this area, you should check out JDD. They meet the first Thursday of each month at 7 pm in the fire station community room in the Burt Reynolds Park. And come join us on a dive!
