Dive Site InformationThe cool part about lost ledges is that it has a dual facing ledge. Since there are two sides to explore and Eastside and the west side there’s usually lots of activity on this reef. There is a wide variety of fish on this reef including Grouper, snapper, jacks, barracuda, moray eels and the occasional turtle. It is not uncommon to find Lobsters in the caves along the base and top of the reef.

We start off the day with an exploration drift dive on Lost Ledges Reef located on the third reef system, followed by a second drift exploration dive also on the third reef system in a different area. The reef drift dive location will depend on visibility and current. We typically leave that up to the captain's discretion. We have 45 min. to 1 hour on each site. Air and bottom time permitting.
The departure dock location for this dive trip is located in Pompano Beach.
