Snorkel the Destin Jetty and Encounter Marine Life

Destin Jetties Snorkeling with Pelican AdventuresThe 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 partially submerged rock wall plays host to a surprising amount of marine life and provides an ideal snorkeling destination. The crew will provide fish food to attract the fish for close-up interactions!

Visitors may notice 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 Gulf of Mexico waters. 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.

Another stop is the grass flats on Choctawhatchee Bay. This spot is more shallow with calmer waters making it a great spot to see crabs, fish and other sea life as well as searching for seashells to keep for souvenirs. There are rare occasions when we can’t snorkel the jetty due to tides, currents or jellyfish and instead will spend the entire time at the grass flats.

Please note that most of the time visibility is good, however the tides and rain play a large role in the color and clarity of the water so it does vary from day to day.
