Thread: Canaveral and Cocoa Beach Diving

  1. #1

    Canaveral and Cocoa Beach Diving

    After hearing about NASA and their large pull out of the area curious to see what happens with real estate in the area. How is the diving? I know it is a couple hours north of West Palm but have never dived that far North in Florida before.

    So nobody ever dives the area on here?

    The springs can be boring; but, if you haven't done them they are excellent. Every time I get to Daytona Beach we go to Ginnie Springs. I don't go past the 60 foot marker.(Pass here and you will die); and there is not much to look at. I love it any way. After a while in the hole you can float/dive the river. I really like that. It's like a drift dive in COZ (with no coral and lots of traffic). Don't forget a wetsuit 7mil prolly. I get away with a 5 mil; but, then I have my own layer.

    There's also American Dive(ing?) International on Merritt Island. Assuming they're still there.

    I'm curious as to what you find for diving in Vero .... sister lives there, so if there's any good diving it'd give me a reason to go visit!!

    Haha...Being a sibling is simply not a good enough reason? Don't worry, I have a sister in OK and I have never been there.
