Warnings – What to watch out for!
* Weed fin highly recommended
If you plan to take advantage of this wonderful resource you might want to purchase a weed fin. Florida waters support natural sea grass beds and as the water can be pretty shallow a weed fin is often required. Weed Fins
Currents – Strong tidal currents as well as strong currents created by inlets present unique hazards for some of the Atlantic coast locations.
Sea Grass – Florida waters can be shallow, sandy and a wonderful place for Sea Grass growth but these grasses support an abundance of critters from small Sharks (mostly Bonnet Heads), Rays, Crabs, Sea Urchins, Conchs, Scallops, Oysters … you get the point. Sharp spins, claws, shells etc. In addition Humans liter our beaches with sharp objects so I recommend water shoes!
In the Winter months (December – March) the water temperatures average around 65F/18C. You will probably want a wet suit. A 3/2 is a good choice for most folks.
