Default Video of Pensacola East Snorkeling Reef

Shot this footage of the new Pensacola East Snorkeling Reef last week. It has not been down long, but it already has some life on it. It will be really cool when the tropical fish make it home....probably soon.

ranges from about 12-15'. I think they are still adding to it, so the final pieces will be a little deeper.

OH......Well, I should say, that the first reefs are between the first and second sand bar, and the last are past the second bar.....which means it is a descent swim, and puts you in a position to be at the mercy of currents and rips.
I would also suggest that swimmers/snorkelers/divers, NOT be in the water during failing light,or when the water is rough/murky....especially out past the second sand bar.....enough said...
This is a Great resource......which has been much needed, have fun,be safe.

that is a little too far out for her. maybe if your allowed to take a boat or something on a calm day if it's even allowed.

Located about 1.5 miles east of the Portafino Towers.
GPS of nearest parking lot : 30.348000, -87.053787
I forgot to count the number of reefs that are currently in place (Someone posted on another forum that there were 18) .....Couldn't find an official # or how many there will be at completion.

Great video. And what a terrific idea to build snorkeling reefs close to the beach for all to enjoy. I hope they build more.
Years ago I took my family down to the keys to Pennycamp in Key Largo and Molasses Reef off Marathon. With simply a mask, snorkel, and fins they had more fun on those reefs than in Disney World.
