Diving in Fort Lauderdale

Considered one of the most famous places in Florida, Fort Lauderdale is the largest city of Broward County and is located just south of Pompano Beach.  It boasts a wide array of cultural, entertainment and educational amenities.  We have a boat available in Fort Lauderdale. However, we recommend you dive Lauderdale like a local. Dive out of Pompano Beach (4 miles N. of Fort Lauderdale). The large commercial port in Fort Lauderdale tends to degrade the water quality and reduce visibility. Pompano has a small clean inlet and the wrecks and reef are better. Most of our clients in Fort Lauderdale are Hotel guests and cruise ship passengers without transportation. Parking is Free in Pompano and costs over $1 per hour in Fort Lauderdale.

If you're looking for the insider's tip on things to do in Fort Lauderdale, we actually recommend visiting the small town of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea.  The beaches are less crowded, the hotels are less expensive, and there's plenty to see and do in LBTS.
