02/06/2004 3.46 Destin Jetties Florida, USA East
I must begin by saying that I am very partial to the Destin Jetties, as I was an instructor in Destin for 5 years. However, in that period of time I witnessed the best and the worst of the Jetties. I logged somewhere in the neighborhood of 350-450 dives at the Jetties, if not more. I have seen everything from a sea horse to a school of spotted eagle rays there. The best time to dive the jetties is at high slack tide (least current at that time), and only on an incoming tide (best vis). The Jetties can also be an exciting night dive, especially with a full moon. Having logged over 1100 dives in the Destin waters, I can honestly say the Jetties are one of the area's best dives, and one of its worst if you don't get a good day. To make the walk easier, Scuba Tech and Emerald Coast Scuba offer trips there, by boat. I first dove the Jetties in June 1998, and last dove there, August 2003.
