Vero Beach & Ft Pierce Scuba diving is GREAT! Visibility can be 50-100 on GOOD DAYS (depending on where you are, the tides, water temp and time of year... best in summer! We love Vero and Ft Pierce Diving "The Treasure Coast" You NEVER know what you will see, even just offshore a few feet there are many tropicals such as angel fish and parrot fish (not too many parrots unless you are near a coral reef) wormrock reefs just offshore are different and draw a variety of fish and lobsters… BIG lobsters! Grouper, snapper, sea turtles, manta rays and sharks. You should never touch the coral/wormrock or anything underwater… don't want to disturb any sea critters' homes! Even coral reefs are alive and you need to be careful, not just to stop yourself from getting hurt, but from doing damage that takes YEARS and YEARS to replace. Learn to control your buoyancy in the shallow water close to shore as the surge can be strong and knock you around!
