Evaluation

*Average:    3.71
I dove the jetties July 14,2006. Visibility was amazing. Beaches had seaweed, but the Destin Pass was clear. We rented a pontoon boat for the day, and beached the boat right up from the jetties. Saw lots of fish, sand dollars, hermit and blue crab. Must dive on slack tide. Tide got bad quickly after that. It would also be a great snorkel spot, although weekends can get crowded with commercial snorkel trips. Had just as much fun diving the deeper bridge pylons from the public parking/beach at the west end of the Destin Pass Bridge. The highlight of the trip was the charter we took with http://www.scubatechnwfl.com/ . Reef at 100' w/ 10' vis in the morning almost made me give up on Destin, but the Miss Louise in 56' w/ 100' vis in the afternoon made up for it. I will be back as soon as possible.
