For over ten years I have been bringing Scuba Divers here to the Sands Harbor Resort and Scuba diving with Scubatyme. The convenience of a short drive from Fort Lauderdale Airport to Sands Harbor in Pompano Beach Florida, followed by a short walk to the Scubatyme dive Charters makes this a great place to take a long weekend and do lots of diving.
This year 9 divers did 12 dives in just three days, 3 on Friday, 5 on Saturday and 4 on Sunday. All of us dove with nitox and five of us did the Saturday night dive.
We eat at the hotels pool bar, "The Bearded Clam" just down the street and at Umberto's across the inter-coastal. All offered good food at reasonable prices.
This is Old Florida at its best, relaxing and fun.
We will be going back again. Thanks to Enzo and Amanda for making the diving so much fun.
