Comments Arrived in Ft. Lauderdale on 11:30AM flight and was able to pick up baggage, rental car, and arrive at Pro Dive by 12:45. Pro Dive is approx. 15 to 20 minutes from the Ft. Lauderdale International Airport which makes it very convenient. September being the slow season, there were only 8 divers on a boat that had the potential of holding 30 divers. Beautiful boat with two bathrooms and all the necessary safety equipment. Divemasters(2) gave excellent dive briefing and were very helpful in getting divers in and out of the water. Surprised at the quanity of fish on both shallow dives. No question previous storms and hurricane had hurt the coral; but fish were very plentiful.Did not stay in Ft. Lauderdale area, so impossible to rate the accomodations and food.
