You can pick up tanks, weights, and a dive flag from Force-E dive center just minutes from the bridge. Diving is from the Phil Foster Park. The park has a full bathroom along with an outdoor fresh water shower to rinse the sand and salt from your gear. Your dive should start 30 to 45 minutes before high slack tide. You will get in at least a 90 minuted dive where you will see all kinds of fish and critters. With water temperatures in the 80s and visibility between 50 to 70 feet, you will love this dive. The Blue Heron Bridge is most definitely a place that you will want to dive multiple times and even get in a night dive.
