When most people think of Fort Lauderdale they think of great beaches, restaurants, night clubs and fantastic waterways, known as the "Venice of America". However that perception is adding a new dimension, a wet one mind you.
The Greater Ft. Lauderdale area is also known as the "Wreck Capitol of Florida", with over 50 shipwrecks in 23 miles. Wreck sites range from 30 ' for the novices to 300' for the technical divers.
Drift Diving in Ft. Lauderdale
Drift Diving, also nicknamed "Valet Diving" is extremely popular. South Florida's reef tract is linear and the warm Gulfstream current flows parallel to the shoreline creating perfect drift diving conditions. Unlike many dive destinations that make you swim out and back to the boat, in South Florida we simply drop you in with a flag and you drift until you are ready to surface, then we pick you up.
Advantages to Drift Diving
- Less stressful
- Explore more reef
- See more marine life
- More bottom time
- More Freedom
