Some have posted reviews for this site in the Dania Beach section. Same beach, different sections. There is an entrance fee of $6 per vehicle for John U Lloyd State Park. After you pay the fee, park in the first parking lot on the right. Walk to the beach and head right (south). Walk about 100 yards and you will see 2 EroJacks on the beach near a palm tree. Head straight out from the palm tree and find the EroJacks (erosion control cement structures that look like children's jacks). They start pretty near the shore - maybe 100 yards - and continue for awhile. Viz was not so great (10' or so), but when I went (July) it was low tide and a decent wind was blowing. I still managed to see: Yellow Stingray, Baby Moray, Peacock Flounder, Tarpon, French & Queen Angelfish, Porcupinefish, Juvenile Highat, and many more typical reef fish. Definitely worth the swim.
