South Florida Lobster Diving - August 8-12, 2019
When the lobster season opens in August each year, divers flock to the warm, clear waters of South Florida to reap the bounty.
The South East Florida Reef Tract extends from Miami northward to Palm Beach. Greater Ft. Lauderdale accounts for 23 miles in the middle of the tract and the largest number of dive sites, with over 100 reef and wreck sites. The Gulf Stream current often flows close to the shoreline bathing the coral reefs in clear, warm water. Hundreds of species of fish flourish along the coast. The reef tracts are very close to shore, no long boat rides here. You can even swim to some reefs from the beach. Scuba Diving and Snorkeling Greater Fort Lauderdale will surprise you!
Pompano Beach, located half-way between Miami and West Palm Beach offers affordable, and close, access to these waters.
With daily two tank trips starting at just $60 with both morning and afternoon options, come join us for 3 days Bugging (what the locals call lobster diving)! More details are coming, but for now, $100 deposit pp will hold your spot. We’ll have a maximum of 12 divers. You don’t want to miss this chance to dive some of the nicest reefs in the US and eat the freshest lobster you’ve ever tasted.
"The first time I snared a lobster and put it in the bag, I knew I wanted to come back and do this every year."
"The reefs in SE Florida make for great diving. The fact that you can come back with a bag full of lobsters is a bonus!"
