Pompano is 15 minutes from Fort Lauderdale and 30 to 40 minutes from Miami, 1 hr from South Beach.
So as far as having things to do while not diving, theres no limits. There are many night clubs, bars, restaurants, shopping strips, cafes, large mall like the Saw Grass Mall ( 1 mile ) and many more single and family activities.
The Diving in Pompano is second to none, there are three reef lines starting fron 15 feet (3 meters) to well over a 100 feet down on the back side ( 33+ meters ) There are well over 30 ship wrecks From 45 feet down ( 9 meters) to 165+ feet (55+ meters).
Theres also beach diving. As far as dive boat operators there are more than 7 in the area with more than 12 boats. There is also a large selection of dive shops in the locol area. All dives are different from site to site sample. Nursery Reef and Copenhagen ( a wreck from WW2 that has turn to wreckage ) you fill find sea turtles, jewfish, nurse sharks. Such two miles away at Razzel Dazzel reef and Qualman Tug ( a colection of 5 wrecks each about 30 to 40 yards ( meters ) apart. you will that large Bull Sharks live there.
As far as to what time of the year is best, theres no real difference, winter month vis is about 70 to 100 feet and water temp is between 70f to 73f a 3mm wet suit will due. In summer time vis is 40 to 90 feet and water temp is 80f to 85f no suit needed. There is no real special travel needs, if you have your family with you, be ready too for 3hrs to Disney World. A two tank dive will cost $70 with the 2 air tank waiting on the boat.or $50 if you bring your own tanks.
