Destin has some of the most exciting diving along the Gulf Coast. Numerous natural limestone rock reefs are just minutes off of the beach. The ledges are covered in hard and soft corals, sponges and sea whips. These reefs are home to tropical fish and game fish including amberjack, grouper, snapper, flounder and trigger (just to name a few). Most of these reefs lie in 80 feet of water.
Destin also has some exciting wreck dives. These wrecks get literally covered up with baitfish in the warm summer water. Tug boats, barges, liberty ships and landing crafts are just some of the offshore wrecks. Most of these lie in 55 to 120 feet of water.
