We visited Red Reef Park while vacationing in Lauderdale by the Sea. I had done some research online for a place to get in some shallow water snorkeling within a short drive from Lauderdale by the Sea. I am really not comfortable in deep water - on a previous vacation we took a day trip to John Pennecamp Park in Key Largo - I was not disappointed with our visit to Red Reef Park. There is an area of rocks to snorkel around that was teeming with sea life the day we were there - very colorful little fish and we even got a glimpse of a larger fish (sorry don't know what kind) with some blue-green coloring.This is a great place to for those with little snorkeling experience and there were quite a few children there. I had an absolute great time, the others in my family who are much better swimmers were probably a bit bored. We did have some difficulty finding the park even with our mapquest driving directions. Once we found the entrance though it was not much of a walk to the rocky snorkeling area. This park also has showers and picnic areas.
