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.
Fort Lauderdale Dive Trips (wrecks and reefs)
There is a wide variety of wrecks and reefs you can reach from Fort Lauderdale. Some wrecks such as the Guy Harvey, a ship sunk in 1997, sit in deeper water and are considered more advanced. Other dive locations such as the Barracuda Reef Moorings are suitable for all diving skill levels. With so many options, the crew at Force-E can have you diving on a different reef or wreck site every day for a month! Contact us today and we'll have you on the best boats and dive sites in Florida.
Fort Lauderdale Shore Diving
Some of the best beach diving in Florida can be found in Broward County. Fort Lauderdale is just minutes from the Shore Diving Capitol of South Florida, Lauderdale-by-the-sea. The shallow beautiful reef is just a short swim from the beach. It's great for snorkeling too! From anywhere in town, you can enter the water, swim about 100 yards and be on the reef. There you can the well known Shipwreck Trail, a replica of a 1800s shipwreck. Shore diving here is free and easy, and offers an amazing diversity of aquatic life. We are local dive experts. Stop by our Pompano Beach Force-E and we'll be happy to give you directions or better yet, hire a guide and we'll show you the best spots.
Fort Lauderdale Drift Diving
South Florida is the drift diving capitol of Florida. The nature of the current makes drift diving the most common and popular way to dive the enchanting reefs. This gentle current allows the diver to slowly drift along the reef line without expending much energy, giving you longer peaceful dives. When you finish your dive, simply surface next to your personal float and flag, and the boat will pick you up. It couldn't be easier!
