Type of Experiences:

Snorkeling Trip on the Greater Ft. Lauderdale. Top 5 Reasons to Choose Pompano Beach & Fort Lauderdale

1. Biodiversity - South Florida reefs are teaming with tropical fish, the same species seen throughout the Caribbean. You may also see larger pelagic species that migrate and different times of the year.
2. Dive Conditions - Because of the close proximity of the Gulf Stream, SE Florida reefs are bathed in warm clear water year around.
3. Short Boat Rides - S. Florida's reef track begins less than a 1/4 mile offshore. You'll have made 2 dives before you could get to the keys!
4. Wreck Diving Capitol - The Gold Coast claims over 100 shipwrecks in all depth ranges. Greater Ft. Lauderdale has the most active Artificial Reef Program.
5. Drift Dives - Does the thought of lazily drifting along the reef with the current and surfacing when you are ready appeal to you?

What You Can Expect:

If you want to scuba dive or snorkeling from Palm Beach, Delray Beach, Boca Raton, Deerfield Beach, Pompano Beach, Ft. Lauderdale, Hollywood, Dania Beach and Miami, contact us on our South Florida Diving Headquarters. Our Dive Center can accommodate large groups with our spacious private charters, and even custom six pack charters on our smaller dive boat.

If you're by yourself, no problem. We can always hook you up with a buddy on one of our daily dive trips. We have something for all ages & skill levels. "You can dive, snorkel or watch from above all on the same boat."

Snorkeling Site

We have some great snorkel sites from Pompano Beach to Ft. Lauderdale. Why drive another 2 hours to the Keys, then take a 45 minute boat ride just to get to the reef! Our snorkel sites are a 1/4 mile off shore, your’re snorkeling in 15 minutes.

The South East Florida Reef Tract extends from Miami northward to Palm Beach. Greater Ft. Lauderdale accounts for 23 miles in the middle of the tract and the largest number of dive sites, with over 100 reef and wreck sites. The Gulf Stream current often flows close to the shoreline bathing the coral reefs in clear, warm water. Hundreds of species of fish flourish along the coast. The reef tracts are very close to shore, no long boat rides here. You can even swim to some reefs from the beach. Scuba Diving and Snorkeling Greater Fort Lauderdale will surprise you!

Snorkeler/Boat Rider Checklist

• Reservations are not required but recommended to assure your space on the boat.
• The tour time is when the boats leave the docks. Please arrive at least 45-60 minutes prior to arrival so that we may leave the docks on time. This gives ample time to insure everyone has time to check-in and gear up.

• Remember if your are snorkeling and do not have your own gear the price for mask, fins, and snorkel are separate rate.
