Florida Watersports Scuba Diving Fort Lauderdale
Greater Fort Lauderdale is not only home to 23 miles of golden sand beaches but also to an array of dive sites and marine life. From Deerfield Beach in the north to Hallandale Beach in the south, a unique natural three-tiered reef system begins in 20 feet of water just 100 yards from shore at its closest point. And more than 75 artificial reefs have been placed on the ocean's floor over the past 20 years as magnets for fish and reef life.
Beginning in depths of 30 feet, there are more than 100 dive sites with permanent mooring buoys to reduce anchor damage. Click here for dive sites. Greater Fort Lauderdale was named Top Ten World's Best Wreck Diving, Marine Life and Value Dive Destination by the readers of Scuba Diving magazine. Immerse yourself in our turquoise waters with our Wrecks and Reefs 20-minute video.
