Photographer and author, Michael Patrick O'Neill, documented using his drone and underwater camera which allows you to view the sealife from a perspective other than the beach. You can see just how many fish there really are in the water by viewing the article here.

Alfred Hitchcock, one of the most iconic filmmakers of all time, has a forgotten history with Singer Island. 

Hitchcock's glory was revealed in the 1950s and 60s with his staple mystery movies like "Psycho," "Rear Window," "The Birds" and "Strangers on a Train." He also rapidly became a television star from his comedic introductions on the series "Alfred Hitchcock Presents."

It was rumored at the time that the celebrity had visits to Singer Island, which brought many of his fans and paparazzi to the area for a chance to see him and get his autograph. But Hitchcock only visited Palm Beach County one time in his life- and it was before his fame in 1939 with his wife Alma. So the question arises: Where did the story come from that Hitchcock could

The Palm Beach Shores St. Patrick's Day Parade will be held on Saturday, March 17th, at 11 a.m. on the south end of Singer Island. It starts at the town's community center (90 Edwards lane) and ends on S. Ocean Avenue. Head over to the 28th annual parade for a day full of floats, music, beer, food and fun!

The idea to have a celebration on the island started in 1989 after a small group of friends went to the nearest St. Patrick's Day celebration, the Lake Worth Parade, where they jumped in on the march. They had so much fun they decided it was time to have one of their own in the town of Palm Beach Shores! In 1990 they gathered a board of 8 people to hold the first ever Annual Palm Beach Shores Parade. The Grand Marshal, Mickey O'Brien, towed a

Researchers at Florida Atlantic University captured the annual Blacktip Shark migration off Singer Island over the weekend.

The footage, which you can see here, shows thousands of sharks heading south toward warmer water. These sharks are often called the "snowbirds of the sea," because they migrate south during the cold months when water temperatures drop below 71 degrees. When the weather and water warm back up they will return north. 

The video was taken right off of John D. MacArthur Beach State Park in North Palm. Blacktips are regarded as fairly timid animals and account for very few attacks on humans. In places like Georgia, South Carolina, and northern-central Florida, there are areas that have cloudy inlets and an abundant supply
