Amazing Marine Life
Check this unique and thrilling adventure off your SCUBA diving bucket list! Lemon Drop, is a favorite site and as its name suggests, sees an influx of lemon sharks in the early months of the year. Lemon sharks are migratory and visit the waters off Jupiter from January through to March. Known for their color, Lemon sharks have a pale lemon brown hue to their skin. There may be as many as two dozen of these large, impressive sharks circling over the sand and returning again for another go-around. Mature lemon sharks typically measure around 10.5 feet. They make the reef sharks appear very small! Sign Up for our newsletter and stay up to date.
