Jupiter Dive Sites: Captain Kurls

 
 
 

Located North of “Scarface” and South of “Loggerhead” Captain Kurls is nestled in 65 – 75 feet of water, and offers the divers a variety of topography ad exploration as the ledge breaks off into three major tiers. Follow the western most ledge and you will engage in potential spear fishing opportunities as you track hogfish, and various snapper species…though be forewarned eventually this western ledge does taper off into the sandy bottom and you will find yourself needing to counter back to the East to pick up the next profile. The eastern terrace is loaded with cul-de-sacs and interesting blow-outs. This is where you are sure to discover those curious Hawksbill Sea Turtles, always a diver favorite. Dive this location straight down the barrel and you will be greeted with Goliath Grouper, Loggerhead Sea Turtles, Moray Eels, Nurse Sharks and all sorts of goodies. Looking for variety and exploration, then ask for Captain Kurls next time you board Kyalami.
