Memorial day weekend is a great time to visit the beach and get some snorkeling in.  Reefs of the same design as those planned for Navarre are already deployed off Pensacola Beach.  This YouTube video provides a view of what the Navarre reefs will look like when deployed.

They are located approximately 1.5 miles east of Portofino Towers on Pensacola beach.  The GPS coordinates for the closest parking lot is  N30.348000,  W87.053787.     The reefs are just to the east of the parking log.  There is a cut in the dunes near the entrance, and you can unload your gear there , then park in the lot.   The reef is marked with a bouy.   There are two poles on the beach which you can use to line yourself up for direction.   The first structure is between the first and second sand bar.

A great way to get involved in our diving and snorkeling reef program is to volunteer to help man a booth at one of our community awareness events.  It’s a great way to learn about the project and promote it to the community.  Some upcoming opportunities to help are :

Fun Fest – Navarre Beach County Park Parking Lot  -April 29th & 30th

Sunset Stampede  – Navarre Beach Boat Launch Parking Lot May 7th

We’re ringing in 2010 right away by having our information booth set up at the Gulf Coast Kayak Fishing Association Rigging Clinic on Saturday January 2nd.   The clinic will be held in the parking lot of Hot Spots Bait and Tackle in Gulf Breeze (211 Gulf Breeze Parkway) from 10 am on through the afternoon.

A great opportunity to get out this holiday weekend between football games and see all the neat things these guys can do to kayaks.   From fish finders, to GPS, to anchor systems, live wells  and lights….if you think you’ve seen it on a boat – these guys have probably thought of a way to rig it on a kayak…..and they’ll show you how to do it too.

While you are there stop by our information booth and learn about our progress on the marine sanctuary and how you can stay informed or get involved and help Make Navarre Snorkelicious.

Hello All –   Fun Fest is fast approaching!


We’ll be setting up our booth Friday May 15th 4 PM – 7 PM.  We only have one vehicle pass  so you will not be allowed to park in the parking lot where the event will be held (behind Cocodries).   Those coming to help set up Friday should park in the boat launch parking lot across the street  from the Pier (north side of Gulf Blvd).

We’re arranging with Charlene Mauro Fearon to pick up the touch tanks and will coordinate with Kenny and Dale Wilder to pick up the tables we’ll need.  A truck will arrive at the Fun Fest site with the set up materials  Friday at 4:00 PM and get our booth assignment.  Our booth will be located in the pier/park parking lot South West of the Cocodries parking lot just south of where the food Vendors will be set up.

If you can come help us set up Friday  between anytime between 4 and 7  PM please come on out (just remember to park in the boat ramp lot and walk over).   We’ll likely finish setting up before 7 (more like 5:30 or 6)

We should have a great turnout for Fun Fest so please come on out and kibitz with us at the booth during the weekend even if you are not signed up to work the booth.  We’ll be herding folks through the touch tanks,  providing information about the snorkeling and diving reefs, and of course collecting donations.

We’ll also have some Sea grass Awareness wrist bands to hand out and hopefully some ‘Make Navarre Snorkelicious’ bumper stickers (I’m going by the printer today –let’s hope they come in on time and look good).

Below is the booth manning schedule for the weekend.   The Navarre High School Marine Science Club Students will be there throughout the event maintaining the touch tanks.
Remember to park inland and take the shuttle or park in the boat ramp parking lot.
