Anyone been out of Port Saint Lucie inlet? Any reefs/wrecks that are 100' or less and good vis?

    What is your idea of 'good vis'?

    Up here out of Ponce Inlet 'good vis' is 8-10 feet. :)

    Well, I dive out of sebastian often and if theres 20' of vis its a decent day. Then again you go down to Pompano and you got 90' on a decent day. whats a typical day like out of PSL?

    Uhhhhhhhh there is a reason why they call it "Bull Shark Barge or Bull Shark Reef."

    I've seen some big bull sharks doing beach dives before. I've noticed they dont come around once they recgonise what you are. The closest I've had one come to me was about 20', but on the same token visibility was also around 20' as well. He/she was just cruising down the beach paying no mind to me.

    Anyone have any close calls with sharks down this way?

    Vis yesterday was top to bottom off Bull Shark barge. Water looked great. Tomorrow the vis could be 6 inches.
