Default Places for Beginner Diver Shore Dives?

Besides Ft Pickens, any other places nearby that I could take some new divers that wouldn't be too hard a dive?

Everytime you hear somebody ask about shore dives tell them to call the Santa Rosa Island Authority and anyEscambia County official you canfind(county commissioners and Turpin) and tell them you want them to approve as much safe shore access we can get. And tell them you don't want excuses,ie.money,environment,safety,etc.,just approval.

Funny you mention the Navarre pier.Some of the floks from our class (this past weekend)wanted to come out and dive it. Would it be fairly easy for us newb's? We dove the P'cola pier rubble both days for our checkout dives. By the way, anyone else is welcome to join us.

Navarre Beach Pier is excellent. And while you're out there - if you find my Penn 260 Slammer on a trout rod about 100' directly west of the barge that's anchored out past the pier I've got a reward and some fresh king dip for you. Seriously - if anyone is out there and finds it please give me a call (850-677-1875)
