Anyone been shore diving at Vero Beach, FL? Any recommendations? Pros/Cons? Heading over there 7-9 Mar.

I haven’t personally done any, but I hear it’s not good and most "local" dive operators shuttle people down to West Palm to board boats for diving. Having said that, there are often great, FREE shore-accessible sites that the dive operators don’t want you to know about (All along Los Cabos, for example). However, I believe in the Vero Beach area heavy surge and acres upon acres of unobstructed sand are the roadblock to good diving.

Can anyone else chime in, who might have first-hand local experience with diving in and around Vero?

Well, goodness. Sort of puts a damper on plans. I really appreciate the info.

I’m new to Vero area and looking to get in the water. All suggestions/recommendations are welcome. There are supposed to be some fun shore dives off Vero Beach and would love to try some out. I’m an experienced diver and ready to buddy with anyone as well.
