Scuba Diving The Dania Beach Erojacks:

The Dania Beach Erojacks / Eurojacks is an artificial reef constructed of dolos, concrete objects that resemble jacks children play with, except these are about five feet tall!  Located in John U. Lloyd Beach State Park, the Dania beach Erojacks run east-west and is located 300 feet offshore, directly in front of the white post that says “JAX” on the beach. The Dania Beach Erojacks run for about 1,500 feet. This South Florida Beach dive location is great for scuba diving and is not bad for  snorkeling.

The Dania Beach Erojacks are a busy boating area and you MUST use a dive flag when scuba diving.

Directions to the Dania Beach Erojacks:

Take I-95 to exit 22 for Stirling Rd. and head east. Turn left onto Federal Highway. Turn right onto Dania Beach BLVD. Follow the signs for Ocean Drive. Keep right at the fork and merge onto Ocean Drive. This will bring you to the park entrance. Drive in and park in the first parking lot on the right. You will want to park on the south side of the lot, as close to the walkway that leads to the beach as possible. Walk to the beach and head south for about 1/3 mile until you see a white sign on the beach that says “JAX.” The reef starts 300 feet from the shore, directly in front of the “JAX” sign.

Scuba Diving The Dania Beach Erojacks Dive Site

  1. We have the pleasure of diving the Dania Beach Erojacks, that Sink, Florida, Sink! was kind enough to remind us about. The JAX are easily located a short swim off shore. Although it would make for some nice scuba diving this visit was pure snorkeling. This spot is great for bringing out friends that may not be big into diving, this is a easy spot that allows access to nice sights easy off the coast.

    We found a few small schools of fish along with a few Angel Fish and a Sting Ray. The visibility was great and we are able to get some great footage using our Advlyfe GoPro GoDeep Dive mask with the GoPro mount built in. You can check them out here, http://www.advlyfe.com

  2. What affects does wind have on the dive conditions at the Erojacks? I’ve dove when it is calm and visibility wasn’t perfect. What are the best times to dive? High or low tides, southward current, west winds? There isn’t a lot of information about this dive site and is not as popular as Anglin’s Pier or Hollywood Beach YBR.

    • We found this dive is best at/around high tide. it’s not crucial, just ideal. Winds pushing east usually helps the viz.
      From diving in Dania and Hollywood often, we noticed the viz is hit or miss many times.

  3. Thanks to this website I have had the opportunity to visit many dive sites. Unfortunately I went there on a day that was overcast and the water was very murcy. Visibility was very poor. But finding the jax was very easy thanks to this site.

  4. Years ago I used to use the jax that was on the beach as my starting point and swim out to the 2nd piling from the end of on the pier for the intersection point, but since it is no longer I stopped going. Now since a new Jax sign is in place as stated on this site I will be back. There used to be some interesting macro photography of hydroids and such. Look forward to returning.

  5. I just got back from snorkeling the erojacks on 12/12/17. Water was a chilly, visibility was not great but got better the further you went out. I saw many angle fish, a very large grouper, parrot fish, one ray, a hog fish, and many other fish I can’t name. Also, a couple of fresh lobster shells. There was no sign on the beach showing exactly where the jacks were, but luckily I saw some other peoples diving flags so it help me find them. Admissio9n to the park is $4 for a vehicle with a single occupant, and $6 for a vehicle with up to 8 people. It was not busy when I was there manybe only about a dozen other people on the beach and 5 or so in the water. I had an enjoyable experience.

  6. Hey everyone!

    I lost a camera diving the Erojacks on the 4th. If anyone finds it please reach out! 704-408-3832

  7. Dove the Jax yesterday. The directions are perfect for finding them. Getting from the parking lot to the entry is a bit of a hike and requires a bit of exertion. The walk up the beach is about 350 paces to the “Jax” sign, but once you are there the Jax start only 150-200ft from shore. The shore water was murky and gross from the seaweed, but the visibility opened up pretty nicely once we got past the muck line.
