Blue Moon Night Dive !!! Lauderdale By The Sea - Datura Avenue !!!

Nice Wrasse and Coral photo by Brian.

Super Squid photo by Heather.

It is time for a Blue Moon Night Dive! This is the 2nd Full moon in the month of August!

We are in search of the perfect night dive.

Remember the cul de sac closes, you will need to dump your gear at the end of Datura and go find parking outside the cul de sac.

Lauderdale by the Sea has an amazing reef.

The best part about it is that it is about 100 yards from shore so there is no big surface swim.

This dive is all in 15 to 20 feet of water so it is great for beginners

or people who need a bit of confidence building.

You can also swim out further to the drop-off if you'd like.

Parking is $1.50 / hr and you need quarters (bring $4 worth to be safe). You can also park a block away.

Meet at the Datura beach shower/shelter at Datura Ave. 1 light south of Commercial Blvd. on A1A - take a left. Look for street parking on Datura. Make sure to bring plenty of quarters.

The flag rental is on the house if you need one.

The store opens at 10am during the week and 8am on the weekends.

Be safe, enjoy life and have fun!

Remember the store closes at 7:00 pm so be sure to get you stuff before that. smile

  • Jason S

    anyone want to hazard a guess on what the conditions might be with aftermath of the storm yet?

    August 28, 2012

    • Robert J. S.

      good question! didn't think anyone was gonna ask. at the beach right now and its calming down quite a bit, don't know what the vis will be like yet though

      August 28, 2012

    • Steve G.

      The Boca Beach report states that the visibility right now is terrible with lots of debris and turned up sand. Let's hope this settles soon, as it really is calming down a lot.

    Don't be jealous Kim. You'll be with us.....with the really cool kids at Datura. Heather can just go ahead and have her Cayman moonlight on her own. At least we all have each other to dive with.

    (Unless of course she wants to invite a friend.....)
