For years now Escambia and Santa Rosa County visitors and residents alike have asked the question  – Where can we snorkel?  A ready answer may be forthcoming.

Beach accessible snorkeling and diving reefs are in the process of being installed off Pensacola beach and could be in place as early as November 1.  Within the next month the Marine Resources Division of Escambia county should have permit applications for a similar Perdido Key snorkeling reef ready for submission by Escambia county.

To top it off, the state permits for Navarre Beach snorkeling and diving reefs in the Gulf and in Santa Rosa Sound are in hand with the federal permits expected to be issued next year.  In addition, the Navarre Beach Marine Sanctuary Committee is pursuing a $114,000 grant from the Pensacola Bay Area Impact 100 organization which could fund two of the three sites planned there (1 in the gulf and 1 in he sound).

With the creation of all three sites – a real snorkeling trail will emerge.   This will make not only Navarre, but the Emerald Coast…..Snorkelicious!
