Lauderdale By The Sea Beach Dive:
The Lauderdale-By-the-Sea beach dive is one of the most visited dive sites in Broward County! This natural reef involves the shortest surface swim in the county, at only 100 yards from the beach. There’s a reason why Broward County declared Lauderdale-By-The-Sea the “Shore Dive Capital of South Florida” in 1997. This site is also a popular spot for lobstering.
The LBS Shipwreck Snorkel Trail Beach Dive:
The Lauderdale-By-the-Sea Shipwreck Snorkel Trail is an artificial reef which any pirate would love! The reef is made up of an anchor, five concrete cannons and a ballast pile. All of the shipwreck artifacts are located within a 100′ x 20′ area which is 200 feet offshore.
Both of these South Florida Beach dive locations are great for scuba diving, snorkeling and free diving.
You MUST use a dive flag when scuba diving and snorkeling at Lauderdale-By-The-Sea.
