Details

The reef off Oakland Park must be seen to be believed. First, there is a garden-like patch reef that stretches for acres just beyond the sandbar. A few hundred yards out, you find the west wall of the first reef system and the change could not be more dramatic. Scores of large brain corals populate the rise up toward plated shelves and ledges. Marine life teems among the mounds with colorful reef species flitting between and larger schools hovering above.

This dive is suitable for open water divers with experience on long surface swims. Maximum depths are less than 25' and bottom time may be 60-75 minutes.

We'll meet at the parking lot, gear up, and walk over to the beach entrance. MasterMeters take cash and credit but parking may be limited so plan on an early arrival to get a space.

RENTAL GEAR IS AVAILABLE FOR THIS DIVE. Air tanks $10, Nitrox tanks, $15, BCD's $15, Regulator set $15, weights $5. Please have your request posted no later than two hours before the scheduled dive time to ensure we can load your gear before departure
