In Greater Fort Lauderdale, the BIG challenge is sorting through the never-ending choices. What'll it be today?
The choices don't end there...Take the word "diving," and in front of it, place every prefix for sub-ocean adventure you can think of: sport, tech, reef, wreck, lobster,spearfishing, day, night, beach, boat, shore, drift, anchor, rebreather, underwater photography and video (but not cold-water or ice).
For divers, Greater Fort Lauderdale is a subtropical blue-water destination that's a unique blend of exotic and familiar. It's a dizzying kaleidoscope of peoples, languages, customs, foods and apres-dive fun.
Love to chase them lobster? Lauderdale-By-The-Sea kicks off Florida's annual crazy for the crustacean with BugFest. During Mini Season (July 26-27, 2017), the two-day lobster chase is served with generous sides of diving and snorkeling, parties, cookouts, contests, music and prizes. Lobster madness throttles back to a dull roar when "regular" season opens a week later. (August 6, 2017-March 31, 2018.) Click here for rules and regulations.
