Default Pensacola Beach Reef is back!

The Pensacola Beach Reef - aka the old Pensacola pier rubble - is back! We had students out there all weekend and the dives were incredible (when the currents would allow). Great visibility and lots of marine life - turtles, tropicals, and more.

Mike Day will be leading a group dive out there Tuesday (June 9) afternoon and evening. Everyone's invited. Meet at MBT around 5pm and we'll do one daylight dive and one night dive.

Give us a call if you need more info.

Jim MBT (850) 455-7702

I was out diving that spot on Saturday and it was really nice to see it is uncovered again. The waves/vis/current were great and there is always something to see on that dive.

If you've never done a nite dive before this is a great way to get started. Plus with 'blues on the beach' started you've got a SI where you can listen to music before gearing up after the sun sets. If I wasn't already tied up I'd be there. Also, there are rumors that a few places at the beach sell adult beverages for the post dive brief. Makes for a fun nite.

It's right out in front of the public safety building at I believe the 16th set of pilings.

I was out there Friday for a night dive and this morning with some open water students and it was AWESOME!! I'm glad to see it back.We saw several small grouper, a handful of octopus, and a really curious sea turtle! It is shaping up to be a great summer with the beach reef, Pickens being reopened, and awesome viz everywhere else!

I was out there yesterday and it was beautiful. The little juvenile turtle -- loggerhead I think -- was therealong with a school of small spades that literally swam allaround us andsome beautifultropicals. It's only 15 feet, so it would be perfect for snorkeling.
