Woo Hoo, We are coming back!!! (6 Replies)
We just returned on Aug. 4 from 2 weeks on the islands of Culebra and Vieques, in Puerto Rico and had a fantastic trip. Now my DH has asked if I would like to return to Okaloosa for the LD weekend for some diving. DUH!! So we will be leaving home on Aug. 28 and spending the night in B'Ham and driving on in on Friday the 29th. We are staying at Tropical Isle through DEP, unit 212. I did not want to pay what I would have had to for a direct gulf front. I got this studio for $321, all taxes,...More

Diving Question (6 Replies)
We are coming to Destin next year for a family vacation in May. I am thinking I need to slip out a day or two to go diving. Most of the diving I have done has been in the Carribean, mostly Cozumel. I have been going through old posts on here and scubaboard and have found mixed feelings on the diving in the Destin area. I have found a few ops in Destin, most commonly mentioned was ScubaTech, any opinions on them? Or should I maybe just look at doing some rec diving in Pensacola and just go one...More

If ScubaGirl77 does not see your message and reply then send her a private message. She can fill you in on diving in Destin. You might like to read her recent trip report on the Ft. Walton forum also.

How big were the waves? (5 Replies)
Since more locals seem to post on the Destin forum vs the Ft. Walton forum, I decided to post my question here. We stayed on Okaloosa Island Fri,Sat, and Sun nights and left at 6AM yesterdam morning. When I dropped our keys off at the DEP dropbox on the second floor of the Boardwalk, I walked over and looked at the Gulf out of the back of the building and the waves were cresting over the end of the pier. Has anyone heard how large the waves were? We were lucky to have gotten our dives in with...More
