Snorkel the Destin Jetty & Encounter Marine Life
The Destin jetty is a man-made finger of rock that juts out into the Gulf of Mexico,
protecting the East Pass that connects Choctawhatchee Bay to the Gulf of Mexico. This
particially submerged rock wall plays host to a surprising amount of marine life and
provides an ideal snorkeling destination. The sharp-eyed visitor will notice may
invertebrates such as blue crabs, hermit crabs and even the occasional shy octopus
scuttling in and out of concealment in the rocks. You’ll see numerous fish species as
you snorkel, including tangs, sergeant majors, damselfish, puffer fish and wrasse, with
occasional visitors from the deeper waters such as juvenile barracuda. A number of
dolphin pods make the area around the jetty home, allowing for the possibility of a
chance encounter with one of these resident marine mammals.
We have an experienced friendly crew (First Aid & CPR certified) waiting to guide you.
Snorkel, feed the fish, join a game of volleyball or soak up the sun’s rays on the beach.
