We are going to be coming to Pensacola Beach for spring break 2013; we have stayed in Gulf Shores and at some of the inlets, we had a great time finding critters with the kids - lots of hermit crabs, little white crabs. a big blue crab, a small stingray, etc. Are there places along the Santa Rosa sound to find critters like this? The kids just love it! And do people swim right off the beach in the sound? Thanks.
