The cost was very affordable and includes snorkeling equipment at no extra charge. The tour operators also have underwater cameras for purchase so you can remember your trip.
The dive center was easy to find, right off A1A in Ft. Lauderdale, near Los Olas, where there is a lot of shopping and other activities. The boat also had a glass bottom for those that can't/don't snorkel. There was a galley onboard with drinks and snacks. There was also complimentary drinking water. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The instructions were clear and we felt very safe.
The staff throws bread around the boat to draw fish, so everyone gets to see lots of beautiful, local fish.
The trip is 2 hours long, with a short boat ride to/from the reef, which is located just north of the dive shop and about a 1/2 mile off shore. All in all, we had a lot of fun!
