Oleta River State Park offers kayaking,mountain biking,camping in an air conditioned cabin, swimming, and picnicking. This is all available along the scenic Biscayne Bay. Some of the best and most technical mountain bike trails Florida has to offer.
Adjacent 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.

Diving and Snorkeling

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.

The 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 at LORAN coordinates 24 degrees 51.802'N 80 degrees 40.795'W.

John Pennekamp Coral Reef
State Park
The 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.
Shark 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.

Watchable wildlife:
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.
