There are two areas to dive in Dania Beach. The most popular is off of J.U Lloyd state park and known as the Erojacks. The Erojacks were put in to control beach erosion and have become a popular artificial reef dive site. Angel fish, parrot fish, nurse shark, lobster are permanent residents and snook, tarpon and turtles are occasionally seen. The jacks look like the ones used in the children's game except they are made out of concrete and are four ft high. They are stacked and run from about 100 yds offshore to the first reef line. Directions: Dania Beach is about 5 miles south of Ft Lauderdale. Take Dania Beach Blvd East to the end and follow directions to J U Lloyd Park. Park at the first lot. The Erojacks are located directly offshore of the 2-3 jacks that are sitting on the beach. There are usually boats and divers on the site. It runs east-west. The second area is the south end of the public beach, marked dive area. There are several reef spots along the first rock ledge. Line up with the center line of the first condo and swim east to the ledge. There is a nice little reef on the east side of the ledge at this point.
