Immerse yourself in the turquoise waters of Fort Lauderdale, which boast some of the best scuba diving in North America. Reef and wreck diving are available just a mile offshore. The area is home not only 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. 

For scuba diving, we recommend Pro Dive International. For more information about Pro Dive, call them toll-free at 800-PRO-DIVE or local at 954-PRO-DIVE. 


Many local companies provide professional guided fishing charters where you can experience the excitement of catching the fish of a lifetime. Anglers of all experience levels can fish for Sailfish, Swordfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Snapper, Grouper, Barracuda and many more.
