This is by far our most dived spot, 9 times just this summer. We have doven here on good days and bad. Either way you always see something. With two reefs running parallel to the beach the second of which runs for miles, how could you not? The best part about this site is the dive shop just 2 blocks from the beach. Park there and they can answer any question you may have. As we started this shore dive ocean safari it was comforting to have experts to consult. They can show you a map and explain the reef perfectly. I highly recommend stopping by.
We always start on the right side of the pier and descend at the first reef. There we almost always see a good size nurse shark, with a few juvenile fish. The second reef has a lot more growth and larger schools of fish. These pictures do not capture the true beauty of this dive.

Oh and burgerfi is just across the street.

Location: The address to the Dive Shop Deep Blue Divers. 4348 North Ocean Drive Fort Lauderdale, Fl. 33308

Parking: Park as close to the dive shop as possible.

Cost: $1.50 per hour, we get 2 hours.

Walking to the dive site: Just walk down the street to the beach and go to the right of the pier.

Snorkel/back paddle to the dive site: It is about 100 yards to the first reef, and the second reef is about 50 yards in front of the pier.

Depth: max no more than 20 feet.

Showers: Just walk back to the dive shop and they have a nice shower. Plus you can get your tanks refilled while you wait.
