to busy Port Everglades is a beachfront park
that preserves some of south Florida's vanishing
natural resources. Beyond preserving them, the
Florida Park Service is actively restoring natural
areas that were damaged by earlier users. John
U. Lloyd Beach is 251 acres of barrier island
between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal
Waterway, from Port Everglades on the north
to Dania on the south. Its natural setting contrasts
sharply with the urban development of Ft. Lauderdale.
Calm winds and smooth summer seas make the
spring season an ideal time to dive at the
San Pedro. The crystal clear blue water around
this sunken shipwreck provides excellent visibility
even in eighteen feet of water. March has
also been an unmistakingly hot month, which
is helping to rapidly warm the water temperatures
even for pampered Floridians.
San Pedro is designated as an Underwater Archaeological
Preserve, set aside by the State of Florida
for its protection and for public enjoyment.
The site has been enhanced with seven replica
cannons, an anchor and an information plaque.
The site is located in 18 feet of water, approximately
1.25 nautical miles south from Indian Key

Pennekamp Coral Reef
first undersea park in the United States, John
Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, and the adjacent
Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, cover
approximately 178 nautical square miles of coral
reefs, seagrass beds and mangrove swamps. The
park extends 3 miles into the Atlantic Ocean
and is approximately 25 miles in length. These
areas were established to protect and preserve
a portion of the only living coral reef in the
continental United States.
Valley is located on the northern edge of the
park and features the sawgrass expanse of the
Shark River Slough. Islands of tropical hardwood
hammocks dot the landscape. Visitors can walk,
bicycle, or take a two-hour tram ride to an
observation tower overlooking the sawgrass marsh
midway around a paved loop trail. The Everglades
City Ranger Station at the park's western edge
supplies passes for backcountry camping in the
Ten Thousand Islands, which can be explored
only by boat, canoe, or kayak. A concessionaire
downstairs from the ranger station offers interpretive
boat tours through the islands.
Fish, turtles, alligators, and wading birds
can be seen from the Shark Valley tower in
and around the borrow ponds. Look for red-shouldered
hawks, snail kites, northern harriers, and
occasional rare short-tailed hawks over the
marsh. White-tailed deer are often seen lingering
near the edges of hammocks or bounding through
belly-deep water in the marsh. In the Ten
Thousand Islands, expect to see many shorebirds,
white ibis, roseate spoonbills, black skimmers
(winter and spring), bald eagles (winter and
spring), ospreys, magnificent frigatebirds
(summer), nesting wading birds and brown pelicans,
bottle-nosed dolphins, manatees, as well as
sharks, rays, and other large fish.
