Default Video: Deadman's Island

How goes it.
Since I was unable to find anyone to go out to Ft. Pickens or Navarre I decided to do a solo in-shore dive at Deadman's Island.

Here's the condensed video from last Saturday.

***** Suggest manually cranking up the quality to 720p HD 60 fps *****

The artificial reefs are full of all sorts of sea life.
It was a good time, I spent about 1.5 hours just touring around all the stacks.

Just to the north of the Island, Heather placed them to act as a breakwater for Deadman's.

She is working to preserve it, restore it.

This is a good satellite view of DMI.

Do u need to use a boat to get there or is there parking near? I'm always looking for inshore shore dives since my dive buddies always seem to have to work ...

Yeah you'll need a Kayak at minimum to reach it especially if you're bringing scuba gear along. You could launch from the 3 mile bridge dock and paddle over but it's quite a haul.

I tried locating a path between the two houses that "guard" the entrance to the sandy spot connecting the peninsula to land but the houses are up on a bluff or whatever you want to call it. You'd need a rope in order to traverse up\down the hill but then you'd have to walk your 100 lbs of gear a mile in the sand to reach the reefs.

Certainly an abundance of life on and around the artificial reefs. What camera did you use to film?
