X2 for peanut island. I haven't personally snorkeled the Blue Heron bridge area. But they say it's a great place. Weekend's it's got quite a few divers there. It's the south-east side of the bridge. Incoming tide is best for clear water.

If you do peanut island, make sure you time it around slack tide. If you need any guidance give Force-E scuba a call. It's ok, not great.

Ocean reef park is another nearby spot that can be done without a boat.

Breakers reef can be done by beach or boat.

​​​​If you go a little further south, pompano Beach has a number of mooring balls in 25' or so that is excellent for snorkeling

Another good option, further south, Lauderdale by the sea (South side of commercial pier) is a good option, but check the vis before you go. You can call gold coast scuba to get a conditions report.

Cato's Bridge. On the West side you can beach your boat and walk over to it. On the East side you can anchor to the North. Don't go during low tide as you need the clear water from the ocean. There is a little bit of current, but there are eddies behind the big sections of concrete where you can float without current. Or you can just snorkel around the shore line and mangroves in places that you can stand. There's an amazing amount of diversity in sea life in that area.

One of the best spots in the country is that Blue Heron Bridge. Get their about an hour before high tide.
