Snorkeling the shallow reef off of Fort Lauderdale Beach

 
Location: A few hundred yards or so from the shore of Fort Lauderdale’s beach.
LAT/LONG 26.110203, -80.091267
 
Description: There are rocky reefs that run along the length of Fort Lauderdale beach. They are accessible from the shore if you are a good swimmer but accessing them from a boat is even better as it gives you a place to relax between snorkels.
 
Notes For this Snorkel: We have been having a lot of storms lately so despite conditions favorable to boating and snorkeling on this day the water wasn’t as clear as we had hoped but still very enjoyable.
