Local Florida Dive Conditions

Greater Fort Lauderdale is home to a three- tiered barrier reef that parallels 23 miles (37 kilometers) of world famous white sand beaches.

Local Florida Reefs

There are many fantastic reefs around the local Ft Lauderdale area that are accessible for divers and snorkelers and abound with life. These shallow reefs are favored by many scuba divers during lobster season where you will see the reefs crawling with bugs. Grouper, tarpon and snook also like to take refuge under the shallow water ledges. Nurse sharks and a variety of tropical fish including are also seen. The shallow water allows the sunshine to penetrate the sea floor aiding the growth of the reefs. The light also allows snorkelers and divers to see the beautiful colors of the reef.

Local Florida Wreck Diving

Fort Lauderdale and Pompano are home to many great wreck dives. These artificial reefs are all sunken vessels that flourish with lots of marine life with the exception of the Copenhagen, which is a natural reef.
