Evaluation

*Average:    2.98
My wife and I dove the Destin jetties for the first time in 2002. One thing you MUST do is to know the tides. Along the jetties you can see Sgt. Majors, Zebra Angels, yellow tangs. I have a picture of my wife next to a 6ft. Stingray buried in the sand. In addition there are lots of huge sand dollars and lots of shells. Lots of stone crabs, skates, flounder. There is a large anchor that came off a barge. Depth is from 20-50 ft. Be prepared for quite a walk to get to the jetty. It is a good 100 yard walk from Gulf Shores Drive to the jetty. Because of the strong outgoing tide, I wouldn't recommend the dive for the inexperienced unless you dive within the limited slack tide. Safety & blue skies…
