Vero/Fort Pierce Viz and Temp report?

I see the paper says the thermocline has moved out; anyone one go out over the weekend?

Re: Vero/Fort Pierce Viz and Temp report?

I just got back from Hatt's Dive shop (Melbourne), I talked to two different divers. One dove 50' out of Sebastian, with top to bottom viz. The water was cooler, but no thermocline. Another diver said it was clear everywhere he dove. Both divers dove this past weekend. Looks very promising for tomorrow!!!

Re: Vero/Fort Pierce Viz and Temp report?

Went out last night and was very disappointed. The weather was way worse than forecast. Wind was stiff from the south. Decent swell from SE. Together it was a washing machine. Vis got better the deeper you went but lots of gunk hanging in the water. We had 20' vis out in 50ft. Along the beach it was more like 2'. At least the water wasnt cold but I roasted in my full suit. Could have skinned it. I hope everyone did better than us.

Agree on the forecast. Vis out of Canaveral was poor as well, 5 foot or so. If either top or bottom conditions were better, we probably would have slogged it out, but we bagged it after one dive each.

The area off Vero Beach was spot on, with the report from Hatt's Dive Shop. We dove today (Thursday) and had top to bottom visibility all day, clearest early in the morning. We haven't had water that clear in years off Vero. Water was warm on the surface and just a little cooler at 35 to 40 foot. Looking forward to opening season!!!

Off vero during mini we had terrible viz only manged a few nearshore. We shot out to 30' and it was top to bottom! Only 1 bug on that spot though. Came back in and just snotty and algae everywhere packing up some of the holes.
