I have been diving on the Inside Reef and on the first reef line at Lauderdale by the Sea for the past three years. So far in 2008, I have made 120 dives on these reefs. They are close to the beach, shallow, and full of marine life. I frequently see nurse sharks, turtles and even an occasional octopus. I post pictures at, and many are of these reefs. The surf can be a problem on both entry and exit, but the trick is to wade into deep water as quickly as you can, don your fins and swim beyond the breakers. When coming in, swim close to the beach, remove your fins and let the breakers wash you onto the beach, then walk out before you get toppled.
