The 2 ½ hour trip starts with a narrated tour through Millionaires Row on the Intracoastal Waterway to Port Everglades and then we head out to the beautiful Ft. Lauderdale, Florida’s ocean waters. The reef, named the Fort Lauderdale Twin Ledges, is a natural coral reef and is from 7’ at the shallowest point to 20’ at the deepest and hosts a variety of colorful marine life. You will be absolutely amazed at the underwater world that lives just right off the shores. We spend approximately an hour at the reef where you have the option of either snorkeling or staying dry and enjoying the view through one of two 3’ x 9’ glass bottom viewing wells on the boat. We will then cruise back along the beach as we head back to the dock where we conclude the snorkeling tour.
