Fort Lauderdale is a great place to enjoy fun water sports with friends or alone. It boasts 23 miles of sandy beaches and warm waters all year. These are the top activities that you can do in Fort Lauderdale.
SNORKELING & DIVING
The stunning beaches of South Florida are not only breathtaking, but so are the underwater views. The Pompano Beach Club Rec Center is located approximately half a mile from the Pompano Pier. It’s a great spot for snorkeling. Here you will find flat rocks, coral reefs, sponges, and sea whips. It is located approximately 350 yards off the coast, at depths of 6 to 22 feet.
Vista Park Reef is another site worth exploring. Two to four-foot ledges are located about 175 yards off the coast. You can see all kinds of tropical fish like tarpon, barracudas and nurse sharks when you swim directly over them. The depth ranges from 13 to 20 feet.
You can organize your diving trip at one of the many dive shops located along the beaches. These shops offer glass bottom snorkeling and scuba diving trips to Fort Lauderdale’s best dive spots.
The Venice of America, with its 300-miles of waterways and 40,000 resident boats, is a boater’s dream.
No problem if you don’t have a yacht. Fort Lauderdale has many rental options. For groups and individuals of any size, companies offer luxury yacht charters with professionally-trained crews. You can explore the beaches and snorkel in the clear South Floridian waters, or even enjoy a buffet dinner while sailing the ocean.
DEEP SEA FISHING
Bahia Mar Marina, Fort Lauderdale offers a fun fishing excursion. Enjoy a stunning backdrop in Florida as you cast your rod to catch mangrove snapper, crevalle jack and snook.
