SCUBA DIVING from Jupiter to Vero Beach

Some of the best scuba diving in Florida.

 

The warm Gulf Stream waters bring a host of colorful life to the reefs and wrecks of the Treasure Coast.

This region includes just north of Titusville through Vero Beach, to Fort Pierce, Fort St. Lucie and down past Stuart to Jupiter, and North Palm Beach. It includes some cold springs, and even diving at Epcot’s six million gallon The Living Seas tank.

The nutrient rich currents provide not only an abundance of large pelagic species like sharks, goliath groupers, loggerhead, green and hawksbill turtles, but you’ll find all three varieties of angelfish, as well as parrot fish, file fish, spadefish – plus all that good stuff on the bottom.

While several natural reefs lie three to eight miles offshore, there are several artificial reefs that contribute to the marine diversity. The Reef Advisory Committee organized the sinking of the USS Rankin, a 459 ft. attack cargo ship commissioned in 1945. This stretch of coast line is particularly popular with spear fisherman, and diving for lobsters is a big residents and visitors alike. The a two-day lobster season for sport divers begins in July, just prior to the regular season. Limits are 6 lobsters / crawfish per day per diver. The regular season is August 1 – March 31.

The Jupiter coastline dominates scuba diving on this stretch of coast line, with several charters offering daily 2-tank dive trips to the local reefs and wrecks. Jupiter scuba diving is mainly drift diving, and you will need a SMB/ surface marker / safety sausage as currents can move quickly. Don’t miss diving during the annual lemon shark migration, just off the Jupiter coast.
