The crystal clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico provide some of the best diving found in the United States. Destin is one of the few areas in Florida where you can snorkel right off the beach without a boat. Don’t miss the Crystal Beach Pier and the Destin Jetties! There are also numerous natural and artificial reefs in the Destin area that are excellent for spear fishing & shelling. Several Destin locations offer everything you will need to enjoy diving on the Emerald Coast, including courses, equipment and diving & snorkeling trips.
