Evaluation

*Average:    3.69
My very first dive was done at Vero. I was given a tour of the reefs by a 16 year veteran to those reefs. Conditions can be perfect with great (25'plus) vis, no surge, little current, lots of plants and animals...just watch for the urchins. Because of the urchins, gloves are a necessity and wet suit is better than bathing suit. Conditions are best here in the spring and early summer. If seas are bad, be prepared for a rough dive. Surge can get bad and because of the shallowness of some areas coupled with hundreds of urchins, it is best to not try it in bad seas. If seas are calm, if wind is calm, this is a great dive for the inexperienced with an experienced buddy. If there is beach restoration in the area, vis will be horrible. Be watchful for the treasure hunter boats because they will stir up the bottom and turn a great vis day into a dark and 0 vis day in a matter of seconds. See Verobeachreefs.com for aerial photos of reef areas and photos of the wildlife.
