Pompano Beach is truly “nature’s aquarium” with some of the best scuba diving and snorkeling in the nation. The Gulf Stream comes closer to shore here than anywhere in the U.S., providing some of the clearest and warmest water anywhere. Beach Vacation Rentals’ properties are host to divers who come from around the world to enjoy a spectacular experience. Ask us about our dive packages.
A three-tier reef system offers variety in depth for every diver¹s experience level, and is within a short swim offshore. Unique to most dive areas, in Pompano Beach you don¹t have to take a boat to reach the reefs for diving or snorkeling. But it¹s the dive operators who can take you for a short boat ride to the most beautiful reefs and the best of the 100+ shipwrecks and dive sites offshore. The dive boats are located right at Pompano’s inlet from the Intracoastal Waterway to the Ocean…so it’s just a few minutes to the reefs, and that means more time for you under water!
The dive and snorkel boats provide all of the equipment, safety gear and instruction. Kids who have never snorkeled enjoy the underwater vistas in no time. Those who wish to stay on the boat can watch the sea life by looking through the boat¹s glass bottom windows.
The snorkel/dive boats typically go out two to three times a day year round. South Florida Diving Headquarters, a well-respected, long-time local operator, will pick you up and drop you off for free from our Beach Vacation Rentals properties.
