20-Foot Great White Spotted Off Florida Coast

By Ed Killer.

During a dive charter trip on Walker’s Dive Charters out of Riviera Beach on Tuesday, a group of scuba divers encountered a once-in-a-lifetime experience — a great white shark.

The encounter took place near a spot known as The Breakers Reef, a location just one mile offshore of The Breakers hotel on Palm Beach.

During the dive, an estimated 20-foot-long great white shark slowly drifted by near the bottom, enabling divers to get photos and brief video.

Many on the trip were thrilled with the encounter.

“Today all of my dreams came true and I got to hang out on the reef with a Great White Shark!!! Best Day ever!!” wrote Margaux Frankel on her Facebook page.

Diver Jim Cocci echoed her excitement.

“Only need two words to describe diving West Palm with Walker’s Dive Charters today: Great White!” he wrote on his Facebook page.
