  • 1 Datura Ave - Over 12 years experience: our Guide will lead you from the white sands directly into the Ocean to the amazing Snorkel Trails and Reef System that thrive in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea. Plus, Jean Cousteau’s dedicated “Shipwreck Snorkel Trail” with visitation 2nd to only the Great Barrier Reef. Including two sets of concrete cannons, a large anchor, and a ballast pile replicating a shipwreck common in these waters many years ago. 8 - 16’ reefs that host a wide variety of tropical sea life you may see:

Large Sea Turtles Blue Tang Parrotfish French Angels Spotted Scorpionfish
Caribbean Spiny Lobster Doctorfish Tarpon Nurse Sharks Spotted Goatfish
Peacock Flounder Barracuda Eels Manta Rays Trumpet Fish
Blue-Headed Wrasse Eagle Rays Octopus Cuttlefish Sergeant Majors

A portion of the pier in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea collapsed in November of 2022 due to the impacts from Hurricane Nicole. This has made fishing prohibited and has created a limited chance to experience guided Snorkel excursions around unseen areas of Anglin’s Pier. Our original Tour was created over 12 years ago to complement the 1st Bio-Rock Project in the USA and today we still strive to grow and protect our beautiful reefs.

Amazing! - It was amazing!!! Kent was great! He explained everything very thoroughly and took care of us. He showed us the anchor and the canons, explained to us the evolution of the coral reefs. He provided us with waters afterwards took various amount of pictures for us. His friend Camilla was there to help us out as well. When my wife got motion sickness they took very good care of her, truly amazing! Definitely going back again!!
