The deep waters of Destin Florida attract a wide variety of marine wildlife to our shores.
There is no better way to observe the life beneath the waves than with a mask, flippers and some oxygen on your back. SCUBA diving in Destin is a spectacular experience.
Destin has artificial reefs from wrecked ships and also has a limestone shelf that drops down 90 feet.
The shipwrecks on the Gulf floor create the artificial reefs. Barnacles, corals and oysters accumulate and algae begins to form which is what draws the marine life to the newly formed reef. The ideal conditions of Destin’s location creates a utopia that brings some of the most unusual and most beautiful marine life from the Gulf of Mexico.
A number of highly qualified SCUBA guides and instructors offer lessons from beginner to professional diver. There are several levels of training offered and the dives vary from 30 to 85 feet beneath the surface depending on the experience of the divers. If you are already certified there are charters available for more experienced divers as well.
The marine wildlife is nothing short of amazing. You will find everything from sea urchins to extremely bright and colorful crustaceans. Destin has a number of game fish from small tropical fish to our largest of game fish like Cobia and Blue Marlins. The sea mammals like dolphins and manatees love it here in Destin.
