water color

Can anyone tell me if the water around the Destin area really looks like what we see in the brochures?! The green is so beautiful and I am hoping to see it, but want to be prepared if that is not the way it will be. Thanks!

Yes it is really that color. But I have been told and have read that the color is slightly different this year due to Hurricane Ivan and the subsequent storm sturge. I am going back to Destin in July so I am hoping that it won't be too noticeable. I am not really sure that I will be able to tell there is a difference anyway, but the locals seem to think it is slightly different. But either way, the pictures you see are just as it is. Such a beautifull place down there.
