="Fort
Experience the best Fort Lauderdale water sports on Florida's sun-kissed beaches, just a few steps away from our Fort Lauderdale resort.

SNORKELING
The water temperature in the Fort Lauderdale area is warm all year-round, making it an ideal location for snorkeling.  Skim the clear waters and observe many varieties of beautiful tropical fish. 
 
SCUBA DIVING
Immerse yourself in the turquoise waters of Fort Lauderdale, boasting some of the best scuba diving in North America.  Reef and wreck diving are available just a mile off shore.  The area is not only home to 23 miles of golden sand beaches but also to an array of dive sites and marine life. From Deerfield Beach in the north to Hallandale Beach in the south, a unique natural three-tiered reef system begins in 20 feet of water just 100 yards from shore at its closest point. And more than 75 artificial reefs have been placed on the ocean's floor over the past 20 years as magnets for fish and reef life. Beginning in depths of 30 feet, there are more than 100 dive sites with permanent mooring buoys to reduce anchor damage.
 
For scuba diving, we recommend Pro Dive International. For more information about Pro Dive, call them toll-free at 800-PRO-DIVE or local at 954-PRO-DIVE.
