Default Fort Pickens

Any suggestions or tips on diving from the beach at Ft Pickens? Where is the entry point? I know there is a drop off probably after about 20' out, but do you drop there? Kick out a few yards then drop? I will be diving with some beginner divers, so hopefully that will be a good place. Thanks.

between the jetties near the pier are good. Small wreck and boulder "wall" about 20' - 30'. I've seen just about everything there.



Watch out for the tards who ignore dive flags tho! :banghead

Be sure to dive on a slack tide. The current can really rip through there.
