Sunny Naples is a popular, sophisticated and charming beach destination on the Gulf of Mexico. It boasts good diving almost all year round, though choppy waters from stiff winds during the winter months can limit visibility. Diving here is a little more challenging that other Florida locations. Rides to the dive sites can be quite long and sometimes bumpy. The waters off the Gulf Coast are generally warm and inviting, but lack the clarity of the Atlantic which is cleansed by the Gulf Stream.
But dive Naples and you will experience sites that will remain with you for a lifetime! Many of the reefs and wrecks of this area are still virtually virgin diving. Fish are abundant and very large. There are literally, colonies of Jewfish, meandering nurse sharks, and huge turtles cruising the area.
