The best of Pensacola Beach snorkeling can be found in several areas around Pensacola Bay and Santa Rosa Sound. From a ballast pile that is all that remains from an old shipwreck, to Sabine Island, made almost entirely of ballast stones with an intriguing history, to a snorkeling trail at Deadman's Island, the Pensacola area offers some unique snorkeling spots. Some snorkeling excursions may also visit the Pensacola Beach snorkel reef, located in Pensacola Bay with good current conditions. All snorkeling locations are in shallow water, generally 3-4 deep.

For the beginner to the advanced snorkeler, there is plenty to see in the waters of the Pensacola Gulf Coast. While we do not have natural coral reefs as in the Caribbean and the Florida Keys, we do have our own special ecosystem, with a great diversity of fish and marine life. On most of the Pensacola Beach snorkel trips, guests can encounter nearly twenty species. Each trip includes the use of clean, professional quality gear for all snorkeling excursions. Snorkeling tours can be two or three hours, and include complimentary snacks and beverages.
