140412-200250-0173Under regular conditions, diving at the Blue Heron Bridge (aka. Phil Foster Park) is always spectacular. Add the variable of a night dive into the mix and it becomes extraordinary! Our night dive was filled with all kinds of amazing and unique encounters.


From, my personal favorite, the lancer dragonettes, who put on quite a show for us including this mating behavior, to rare and unique creatures such as dwarf frogfish.

140412-200551-0179The Blue Heron Bridge comes alive with a smorgasbord of unique marine life under the cloak of darkness. Adding to the list of unique creatures the group saw included two different species of pipe fish, squat lobsters, sea spiders (carrying eggs!), stargazer (chewing on Ian’s finger!), many different species of nudibranchs, and countless numbers of octopus. This list only scratches the surface of the encounters we had while diving at the Blue Heron Bridge.

Best of all, this was all within the span of an area no larger than 30 square feet. You don’t have to travel far to see an incredible diversity of marine life at Phil Foster Park. Best of all, our night dives at Phil Foster Park are FREE! We hope you will join in the fun at our next night dive at Blue Heron Bridge.
